The Zenith camera was made by Eastman Kodak Company solely for the British market. It was a quarter-plate version of Kodak's No. 2 Eureka camera. In the UK the Eureka name was already in use for a hand camera made by W. W. Rouch. Two thousand examples of the Zenith were made. The model B incorporated a release catch for the front door.
