One would expect that Kodak would have made a lot of 110 cameras since they were responsible for inventing the format in 1972. 110 cameras were Kodak's response to the quite popular, Japanese and German 16mm cameras of the 1960's. Why they decided to come out with an entirely new format (13x17mm) in a ridiculously large cassette -- requiring paper-backing -- for a line of subminiature cameras is anyone's guess. Perhaps they thought they could not compete with the existing 16mm cameras (10x14mm) on their own turf. By coming out with a new format (110 is actually 16mm film with a different type of perforation), they could get the jump on the competition -- through intense advertising. And they succeeded -- to a point. Most of the millions of Kodak 110 cameras were probably made in Rochester, New York, but several were made in Brazil, and some in Mexico, China, Germany, and the UK -- and some models were never sold in the USA. And, of course, lots of other camera manufacturers also made 110 cameras -- from extremely simple junk, giving the 110 format a bad reputation, to top-of-the-line cameras, that were as expensive as full-frame 35mm cameras due to the need for miniaturization. In no time, the 110 cameras managed to destroy the 16mm camera market. But in the end, Kodak lost the war. Eventually, the 110 camera just could not complete with the compact 35mm rangefinder cameras of the time. Today a few 110 cameras are still being made -- NOT by Kodak -- but these are largely very low-cost, featureless cameras designed for kids. If Kodak had decided to produce 16mm cameras instead of 110 cameras, they could have succeeded by standardizing the various 16mm paperless cassettes, and the submini camera might likely be the most popular film format today -- and without having to go down the Kodak Disc and APS camera dead-ends. Here are the Kodak 110 cameras in alphabetic order.
This list is inaccurate and incomplete. If you are able to provide more accurate information than is listed here, please contact us.
(1996) It looks just like a 35mm Point & Shoot, but it's really a 110 camera -- made for kids (or dog-crazed adults!). It's the same as the Kodak for Kids 110 Flash camera -- see below -- except the front is mostly white and covered with black spots -- like dalmatians, of course. It has a built-in flash -- which is turned on and off with a switch. It has a 22mm f7 fixed-focus lens -- which is set at f11 for normal use, and switches to f11 for flash use. The shutter is set at 1/125. It has a sliding lens cover which also locks the shutter release. Made in China.
Kodak sold several BIG FLASH outfits, and while these all included Kodak 110 cameras, they were different 110 cameras -- using the same BIG Kodak flash -- the EKTRON II. Kodak made several electronic flashes for several of their 110 cameras -- some having flip-flash sockets, and others standard hot shoes. These outfits usually included the Tele-Instamatic 608, the Trimlite 28 or the Trimlite 38 (see below). The EKTRON II flash could be used on other 110 cameras as well.
(1980) It is simply marked "BROWNIE CAMERA" on the front, but it came in a few varieties. It was simply a later version of the Kodak Pocket Instamatic A-1 of 1978, and has an unusual boxy shape for a 110 camera with a simple, one button operation. But then most of Kodak's Brownies were designed for simple operation. It was made by Kodak Limited, a subsidiary, which sold cameras largely in other markets -- in this case mainly the UK and Australia. It has been suggested that this camera was meant to celebrate Kodak's 100th anniversary, but it was not marked as such in any way, and it would be a rather poor example for such a grand celebration. Well, OK, its advanced features include a viewfinder, wrist strap, and that it takes a flip-flash. Depending on your point-of-view, there were different versions, although Kodak Limited labelled all of them, "Brownie Camera". The original was probably just a rebadged Kodak Pocket A-1 with a 25mm, single element, f11 lens, and a 1/60 shutter speed. But like the Pocket A-1, there were variations. Some had a black shutter release button while others sported a yellow button. Some have a black plate around the lens, while others are silver. Also, the script is slightly different on some models. Some have been seen with a front cover -- that flips down, unlike other Kodak 110 cameras with handle/covers attached to the end. A few were made in brown and gold, possibly as gifts, promotions, or for store display purposes.
(1986) Kodak Limited came out with a modified version of the Kodak Cross (see below), and called it the "Kodak Brownie II". It really has nothing in common with the Brownie Camera (above) other than it was produced by Kodak Limited. It is just a rebadged Kodak 110 Cross (below) that was made in Brazil and sold in non-US markets, so it is hard to find -- unless you are friends with an ardent Kodak Brownie collector!
(1993) Like most Kodak 110 cameras, the Cameo Motor 110 has a focus-free lens, but it is a slightly longer 28mm lens -- and a slightly faster 1/125 shutter to prevent blurring. Oddly enough, it has a motor drive for fast film advance and a large, tall flip-up flash for red-eye reduction -- which kinda-sorta resembles a Cobra snake getting ready to attack, and covers the lens when not used. It was designed just for 400 speed film and uses two AA batteries. Why it was called the Cameo instead of the Cobra, we will never know, but it should not be confused with the Kodak Cameo Motor EX camera of 1995 which uses 35mm film.
(1985) A year before they released the Brownie II, Kodak Limited came out with an advanced version of the original 110 Brownie Camera (see above), and called it the "Kodak Cross", instead of the "Brownie II Camera". Unlike its predecessor, it has the standard 110, "flat" body-style, and now has a 22mm, single element, f11 lens, with shutter speeds from 1/50 to 1/250. Also, in this model, the speed is set by the film cartridge -- either 100 or 400. It also has a switch on the top for sunny or flash -- which changes the exposure setting. It came with a built-in camera cover -- similar to other Kodak 110 cameras. It was mainly sold in Brazil -- which is a strongly Catholic country. My guess is that they thought that the name -- "CROSS" -- would help sales.
(1978) It's the base model in the Ektra line-up with a basic 25mm f11 fixed-focus lens -- and a BIG "1" on the top! Like all Ektra 110 cameras, it takes ISO 100 and 400 film. This model accepts a Flip-flash. Single shutter speed.
(1978) This is a step or two up from the Ektra 1 with a 2-stop faster, and 3mm wider, 22mm f5.6 fixed-focus lens. It takes ISO 100 and 400 film, and can use a Flip-flash, but also accepts a new Kodak add-on electronic flash -- which uses TWO AAA batteries. The shutter speed is set by the film cartridge (1/60 - 1/500), while a "weather" switch on top sets the f-stop.
(1978) Basically an Ektra 1 that was made in Brazil. The camera is marked "Camara", not "Camera" so it was meant for South America. The lens is marked "KODAR" with no focal length or f-stop. The main difference from the Ektra 1 is that the camera has a built-in cover that flips over and turns into a handle. Takes a flip-flash. It might have the same lens as the Ektra 1 -- or it might be the same as the Ektra 12 (below).
(1978) Basically an Ektra 1 that was made in Germany with a 2mm wider, 23mm f11 lens. The main difference is that the camera has a built-in cover that flips over and turns into a handle. Takes a flip-flash. It might be the same as the Ektra 10 (above) except that it is not marked "Camara".
(1980) This is a longer Ektra 12 with a built-in flash. There is an exposure switch on the top to turn on the flash -- and a ready-light. The camera has a longer built-in cover that turns into a handle. Made in Germany.
Looking very much like the Ektra 22 (made in Germany), it adds an simple exposure switch on the top plate.
(1978) An step-up from the Ektra 12 of the same year with a 25mm f9.5 lens and a switch on top for sunny/cloudy conditions which changes the shutter speed. The camera has a built-in cover that turns into a handle. Takes a flip-flash. Made in Germany.
Similar to the Ektra 22 but in a longer body with a built-in flash. Same 25mm lens. It has a similar switch on the top for sunny/cloudy/flash conditions. The camera has a built-in cover that turns into a handle. Made in Germany.
(1978) Similar in appearance to the Ektra 22 with the same 25mm f9.5 lens, but with an electronic shutter and automatic exposure control -- so the exposure switch is replaced by a CdS meter which sets the shutter speed automatically from 1/250 to 5 seconds. The camera has a built-in cover that turns into a handle. Takes a flip-flash. Made in Germany.
(1986) It's a re-emergence of the Ektra 100 of 1983 (below) which was also made in Germany -- but in a black body with a COLORED cover/handle and accents.
(1983) It's a re-emergence of the Ektra 12 of 1978 (above) which was also made in Germany -- but with a 22mm lens, instead of a 23mm lens. It was available in black, red or white.
(1983) Appears to be the same as the Ektra 100, but appears to be only available in black -- and may have been available in a different market.
(1980) An intermediate camera between the 1978 Ektra 12 and the 1983 Ektra 100, the Ektra 200 has the same 22mm f11 fixed-focus lens and takes ISO 100 and 400 film. The camera has the same built-in cover that turns into a handle and takes a flip-flash. And like the others it was made in Germany. The difference is that the Ektra 200 camera has a chrome body with either a black or orange shutter button, and either a black or chrome name plate. Talk about HIGH CLASS!
(1980) This camera was basically a re-release of the 1978 Ektra 22 and the same 25mm f9.5 fixed-focus lens and other features. It takes ISO 100 and 400 film. The camera has the same built-in cover that turns into a handle and takes a flip-flash. And like the others it was made in Germany.
(1978-1981) According to many, this is the top of the line Kodak 110 -- despite not have any automatic exposure features! Instead, it has five, mechanical, shutter speeds from 1/30 - 1/350 that are set by the film cassette speed (OK, I guess you could call that an automatic exposure feature), in combination with manually selected "weather" symbols on the top of the camera -- which also sets the f-stop (f8, f4, or f1.9) and the flash. This was Kodak's most versatile pocket camera -- equal to almost any photo situation, yet small enough to fit in your pocket. The lens is extraordinary -- a super-fast 25mm (f1.9) four-element lens. It was one of the speed-demons of the submini world. Wide open OR stopped down, it can produce negatives with edge-to-edge sharpness. One reason is that this Kodak lens is designed with an aspheric element -- a design usually limited to expensive lenses. The viewfinder is pretty amazing for a 110 pocket camera. It's large, bright and displays 110% of the picture area, which is outlined by a projected reticle with parallax correction. Focusing aids and exposure data are also clearly visible at all times. You can focus and adjust the camera without taking it from your eye. The tiny integral flash -- using two AAA batteries -- has an effective range up to 20 feet with ASA 400 film. It recycles in an astonishingly brief two seconds with fresh batteries. In many ways this "can-do" camera from Kodak is a joy to handle. The shutter release is firm and precise. The smoothly operating focus wheel fits nicely under your fingertip. And there's a sliding lens/viewfinder cover you can't misplace. In use, you only need to focus from infinity to four feet, using a sliding lever (with distance in feet and meters), and then select one of four "weather" symbols -- which changes the shutter speed, f-stop, and flash, in combination. For ISO 100 film, the * setting (SUNNY) gives you 1/175 at f8. The EX setting (EXTRA EXPOSURE) gives you 1/125 at f4. The LX setting (LONG EXPOSURE) gives you 1/100 at f1.9. The Z setting (FLASH) gives you 1/30 at f1.9 AND fires the flash. Using ISO 400 speed film applies the same f-stops, and it increases the shutter speed -- but the manual is unclear as to what extent. The EKTRAMAX can be reloaded with perforated 16mm film IF A "BLANK ADVANCE" is made between each photo -- advance the film until it stops. Cover the lens and press the shutter button. Then advance the film again. This will create about a 7mm space between each exposure on the 16mm film. If using single perforated film, make sure the perforations are on the same side as the film sensor tab in the camera.
(1978) The first Ektra with a built-in flash -- so it's longer and lacks the cover/handle of the Ektra line, but it has a sliding cover for the lens -- a three-element, 25mm f8 lens with fixed focus from 5 feet to infinity. The shutter speed is set by the film cartridge and the flash -- 1/60 with flash (turned ON), otherwise 1/125 with ISO 100 and 1/210 at ISO 400. There is a ready-light in viewfinder. Available in different colors. The flash requires two AA batteries.
(1979) An advanced version of the Ektralite 10 from the previous year, the Ektralite 30 has a slightly wider and faster 22mm f5.6 lens. The most noticeable difference is the flash -- that swings out from the end of the camera. But the main difference is that this camera has "automatic exposure control" -- and a built-in flash which requires two AA batteries.
(1981) This re-release came out a year after the Ektralite 450 with the same features, but was available in black OR white. Uses two AAA batteries.
(1980) Built-in flash -- two AAA batteries. The usual exposure settings -- sunny, cloudy or flash. The camera has a built-in cover that turns into a handle. Made in Germany.
(1980) That's right, the 500 came out a year before the 400. It features a 22mm f5.6 lens with a built-in electronic flash. Exposure is fully automatic with red/green LED indicators in the viewfinder for "OK Shoot/Don't Shoot without Flash" simplicity. The most impressive feature of the camera is its lens - a multi-coated Reomar lens from Schneider Kreuznach of Germany -- an unexpectedly high quality lens for a 110 camera. It requires a 9-volt battery to power the built-in flash -- and the CdS photocell that automatically fires the flash when needed. Made in Germany.
(1987-1989) The Fuji 110 Quick Snap of 1986 was such a successful single-use (AKA, disposable) camera in Japan that Kodak decided to get into the game with this 110. It basically looks just like a box of 110 film -- because it basically is. OK, a lens, shutter & viewfinder were added. The box is marked "KODAK FLING 200" because it only was available with 200 speed film. It was made in two slightly different versions, although the mechanics were the same -- fixed focus f8 lens with single shutter speed of 1/120. The original, which is harder to find, has the viewfinder on the top and the film advance on the bottom (top in photo), while the more common model has them both on the top -- but on the opposite ends! Kodak basically turned the innards of the camera upside-down -- six of one, half dozen of the other. It should not be confused with the later Kodak 35mm Fling version of 1988 -- which, although is basically a similar looking box, it is larger and marked "KODAK FLING 35".
A very basic, bare-bones 110 camera. Just another late 70's version of the Trimlite 18 of 1975 (AKA, Winner, Mickey-Matic [Model A] & Gimini) -- 25mm f11, (1/1) fixed-focus lens. Mechanical shutter with speed of 1/90 and flash speed of 1/40 -- using a flip-flash. Probably only available in blue. Probably made in Mexico.
Yet another late version of the Trimlite 18 of 1975 (AKA, Winner, Mickey-Matic [Model A] & Galactic) -- 25mm f11, (1/1) fixed-focus lens. Mechanical shutter with speed of 1/90 and flash speed of 1/40 -- using a flip-flash. Available in several "Martha Stewart" colors. Made in Mexico.
Like the Pazzazz and Styl'elite (below), this is simply a reincarnation of the Ektralite 10 -- a bare-bones 110 with a built-in flash. And, just like spray-paint, it came in a wide variety of bright colors.
(1973) Except for the color, it's the same as the bare-bones Kodak Pocket Instamatic 10 of the same year. 25mm (f11.0), (1/1) fixed-focus lens. Mechanical shutter with speed of 1/90. Designed for flash-cubes. Flash speed of 1/40. No exposure control. Probably just an attempt to capitalize on the "Hawkeye" name-fame.
(1974) FYI, for some reason, there was no Hawkeye Pocket Instamatic II -- but there was a Hawkeye Instamatic II (1969) but it used 126-size film. This model is apparently VERY hard to find. It is very similar to the original, but the shutter release is moved back on the top plate, and the viewfinder is moved to the opposite end.
(1976) Interestingly NOT labeled as "Hawkeye POCKET Instamatic", it nevertheless used 110 film -- and it has a dark brown covering more reminiscent of the original Hawkeye cameras, unlike the other two Hawkeye Pocket Instamatics. It has a 25mm f11 and a 43mm f11 lens, and the viewfinder changes to accommodate the view. Accepts a flip-flash.
(1974) After Kodak's original line of Pocket Instamatics in 1972, Kodak unveiled a similar line of 110 cameras in 1974 that were similar in many ways, and were simply called "Instamatics" -- dropping the "Pocket" -- although they were just as small and light, if not more so. The Instamatic 91 had a 25mm f11 lens like the Pocket Instamatic 10, but it was a triplet optic for better quality. The single speed was 1/60 instead of 1/90 and it took MAGI-CUBES. A built-in lens cover locked the shutter from firing. Perhaps the biggest change was that the shutter release button is now round instead of square! It was the same as the Instamatic 92 (below) but had the KODAK name on the end of the face plate.
(1974) This was the same as the Instamatic 91 (above) but had the KODAK name in the middle of the face plate -- between the lens and the viewfinder -- and was sold in a kit with a roll of film, a MAGI-CUBE, and a flash extender to reduce red-eye.
(1978) This is a Pocket Instamatic 10 except that it was made in Brazil, but it should not be confused with the Pocket Instamatic 101 -- which is also basically the same, but which has a round shutter release button, instead of the square one on the Instamatic 101. It that all perfectly clear?
(1976) Feature-wise, the 125 is similar to the Instamatic 91 of 1974, but it has slightly tapered body ends, and a flap on the viewfinder end covers up the Magi-cube socket. One of the hardest Kodak 110 cameras to find.
(1976) This is a "deluxe" version of the 125 with the same tapered body -- but with a sliding lens cover and a silver top.
(1975) The Instamatic 192 is a step up from the basic Instamatics because it offers some exposure control. A switch on the top is marked SUNNY/CLOUDY, and sets the shutter speed at either 1/80 or 1/40. Otherwise, it uses the same 25mm f11 lens.
(1976) The Instamatic 230 has the same tapered body as the Instamatic 130 -- with the Magi-cube socket under a flap -- but adds the exposure control switch of the Instamatic 192 on the top to adjust the shutter speed.
This was marketed by the toy company, Tyco, and is a Kodak for Kids Flash 110 camera (below) with a special, large, rotating disc that attaches to the front of the camera to create special FX -- multi-image, center-spot, star filter, etc.. The camera can be used without the attachment on its own -- in case you get worn out from all the excitement.
(1996) It looks just like a 35mm Point & Shoot, but it's really a 110 camera -- made for kids. It's the same as the 101 Dalmatians camera -- see above -- except it is all black. It has a built-in flash -- which is turned on and off with a switch. It has a 22mm f7 fixed-focus lens -- which is set at f11 for normal use, and switches to f7 for flash use. The shutter is set at 1/125. It has a sliding lens cover which also locks the shutter release. Made in China. Also sold as part of the Kodak for Kids 110 Camera FX System (above).
Yet another late version of the Trimlite 18 of 1975 (AKA, Winner, Gimini, Mickey-Matic [Model A] & Galactic) -- but sold in a KIT with film, flash bar, film and wrist strap. It has the same 25mm f11, (1/1) fixed-focus lens. Mechanical shutter with speed of 1/90 and flash speed of 1/40. Made in Hong Kong
This is a rebadged Star 110 with Lion King decals and colors. It came in a KIT like the Kodak Kids Camera (above). It has a 28mm f8 lens and a single speed of 1/125. It was also sold as the Mickey-matic (Model B).
(1988) This is a bare-bones Instamatic -- also sold under other names, such as the Winner, Gimini, Galactic, Kodak Kids Camera, etc. It came in various colors, such as blue and purple, and has a picture of Mickey Mouse on the top, of course. Uses flip-flash.
This is a later model with a built-in flash. It's the same as the Star 110 and Lion King -- but with Mickey on the top. Like the Lion King, it was sold in a KIT for kids with film, batteries, and valuable coupons!
(1976) A very unusual style for a Kodak 110, it uses the push-pull (film-advance & shutter cock) style of a Minolta 16. As a result, it collapses, when not in use, and is much smaller than the typical Kodak 110 -- hence the "MINI" in the name. It is one of the few Kodak 110 cameras that actually offers you exposure control -- even though it is no match for the Minolta 16. The Mini-Instamatic has a 25mm f5.6 fixed-focus lens, and has an adjustable aperture using weather symbols on the top from CLOUDY to BEACH (f5.6 - f22). At the same time, this "weather lever" sets the shutter speed at either 1/80 (on the sunny end) or 1/40 (on the cloudy end). It also has a hot shoe connection on the end -- Kodak made a special KODALUX manual-exposure flash for this camera -- but any small, auto-exposure, hot shoe flash makes this camera very usable!. As a result of its manual exposure possibilities, this camera can be reloaded with 16mm film (in 110 cassettes, of course) -- of any film speed. But a small change must be made to the 110 cassette. The 16mm film can be perforated or unperforated, but if it's perforated the perforation might appear in the image. Specifically, this camera has a tiny "cassette sensor" along the edge of the film plane. If a small notch is cut into the edge of the cassette to avoid pushing the sensor in, the camera will operate normally.
(1976) This model is the same as the S30, but it adds a CDS meter. The meter doesn't automatically adjust the exposure at all. But it does tell you if the exposure is OK. There is a small button in the middle of the exposure adjustment lever. When this is pressed, a RED LED in the viewfinder warns you to keep moving the lever.
This is a bare-bones Instamatic -- also sold under other names, such as the Mickey-Matic (Model a), Winner, Gimini, Galactic, Kodak Kids Camera, etc. One the top it loudly proclaims to the world that this is "MY FIRST CAMERA". Uses a flip-flash.
Like the Pazzazz (below) and Graffiti, the New York is just a reincarnation of the Ektralite 10, but apparently only available in a dull gray body -- the color of New York concrete. Hecho en Mexico.
The closest thing to a HIT camera that the Kodak Instamatic would come, it's a stripped down version of the Pocket Instamatic 10 -- without the flash cube socket. At least they included a wrist strap! Made in Hong Kong.
(1985) Like the New York and Graffiti, the Pazzazz is another born-again version of the Ektralite 10, but with bright colors. Made in Brazil.
(1978) Unusual boxy shape for a 110 camera. Perhaps Kodak thought sales of 110 cameras would improve if buyers thought they were getting more for their money, and it was simply a way to appear like a more expensive 35mm camera. But the A-1 is very simple. Takes flip-flash. Comes in two "colors" -- one has a white shutter button and lens surround (see photo), while the other has a yellow shutter button a black lens surround. HIS & HERS? This was later sold as the BROWNIE (above) in 1980.
(1979) A reincarnation of the A-1 of 1978 in 1979, this time with a blue shutter release button. I guess that's where the "B" comes from. Apparently, there never was a Kodak Pocket C-1 -- why carry around a bigger camera if the results aren't any better?
(1973) Introduced a year after the first Pocket Instamatic cameras (see below), this model had a slower 25mm f11, single-element, fixed-focus lens. Mechanical shutter with speed of 1/90. Designed for flash-cubes. Flash speed of 1/40. No exposure control. It was the same as the Hawkeye Pocket Instamatic (above), and was the basis for many other simple Kodak 110 cameras, such as the Kodak Outdoor (above). Like other later Kodak 110 cameras, the Pocket Instamatic 10 was also sold in a kit, as the Kodak Pocket Smile Saver Kit -- which included film, flash cubes, flash extender, and valuable vinyl case. This should not be confused with the earlier Kodak Smile Saver Kit which included a larger Kodak 126 Instamatic camera.
(1972) One of the original 110 cameras from Kodak. 25mm f9.5 (3/3) fixed-focus lens. Mechanical shutter with speed of 1/100. Designed for flash-cubes. Flash speed of 1/40. There is no exposure control, but it has a tripod socket -- which sounds strange, but it was needed for the Kodak Instatech (below) -- which needed it and was based on the Pocket Instamatic 20.
(1972) Another one of the original 110 cameras from Kodak. 25mm f9.5 (3/3) fixed-focus lens. Electronic shutter with speeds of 10 - 1/180. Designed for flash-cubes which locks the shutter speed. The CDS meter provides automatic exposure control of the shutter speed using a K battery. The camera body included a tripod socket, and the K battery powers an RED LED in the viewfinder.which lights up when 1/30 or slower will be used. Kodak also sold a "compact camera stand" as an accessory -- which had a small case to store the included cable release. Yes, it has a cable release connection!
(1972) One of the original 110 cameras from Kodak, it's an improved version of the Pocket Instamatic 30 because it allows for the slightly faster 25mm f8.0 (3/3) lens to focus with a small switch -- either 3-6 ft or 6 ft to infinity. The electronic shutter speeds are now 10 seconds - 1/225. Requires a K battery.
(1972) One of the original 110 cameras from Kodak, it's an improved version of the Pocket Instamatic 40 because it has a MUCH faster 26mm f2.7 (to f17), (4/3) scale-focusing lens with a lever on the top. Some describe it as frighteningly sharp. Electronic shutter with speeds of 5 seconds - 1/250. The CdS meter provides programmed, automatic exposure control -- higher light levels result in higher speeds at smaller apertures, and vice-versa in lower light. Requires a K battery.
(1972) One of the original 110 cameras from Kodak, it's an improved version of the Pocket Instamatic 50 because it adds rangefinder-coupled focusing to the 26mm f2.7 lens. Focusing from three feet to infinity. There are several variants of the Pocket Instamatic 60, some with and some without a battery test button. There are also differences in the shutter release lock with some sliding to the left while some slide to the top. There may have been some made without any shutter release lock. Requires a K battery.
(1972) A very early, very basic 110 camera, but with a very good three-element, 25mm f11, fixed-focus lens. It has a single shutter speed of 1/60, takes magic-cubes and has a sliding lens cover. You have a choice of different colored shutter release buttons. What's not to like?
(1974) This camera should not be confused with the later Kodak Instamatic 101 of 1978, although they are very similar in features. They both have a 25mm lens, but the Pocket Instamatic 101 has a superior three-element lens versus the single-element lens of the Instamatic 101. So have do you tell them apart? The Pocket Instamatic 101 has a round shutter release button; the one on the Instamatic 101 it is square.
(1972) This is an improved Pocket Instamatic 100 -- in that it has a TWO-speed shutter with a switch on the top for CLOUDY & SUNNY.
Also from 1972, the Pocket Instamatic 300 has a much faster 25mm f5.6 lens. Also, it has an adjustable aperture with five exposure settings on the top -- instead of just two.
(1972) While this model reverts back to the 25mm f11 lens, it adds auto-exposure (with a CdS photo-cell) with shutter speeds from 1/300 to 10 seconds. A tripod socket was added, of course.
(1972) This top-of-the-line model combines the 25mm f5.6 lens of the Pocket Instamatic 300 with the auto-exposure of the Pocket Instamatic 400. It has an exposure lever on top which adjusts the f-stop, and a CdS meter that controls the shutter speed from 1/300 to 20 seconds.
This rare Kodak camera came in a KIT marked "SCIENTIFIC PHOTO OUTFIT FEATURING KODAK POCKET INSTATECH CLOSE UP CAMERA". It was similar in form and function to the more common Kodak 126 Instamatic kit with a similar name. I guess it was Kodak's answer to the many other subminiature cameras (ex, Minox, Minolta, Yashica) that offered close-up photography options -- something the other Kodak 110 cameras lacked. The camera is based on the Kodak Pocket Instamatic 20 (above), but with the lens aperture fixed at f22, and the focusing set for a depth-of-field of 33" to 39" in front of the camera. By using a selection of auxiliary lenses, which are mounted on the front of the camera with an adapter, much closer distances are achieved. The lenses are color-coded -- green, blue, gold and silver -- and cover shorter distances. The lens holder screws into the camera tripod socket and accessory lenses are placed in front of the main lens. The holder has ends that are placed around the subject to ensure correct focus, and to achieve the correct field of view. The brackets are intentionally angled and a prism is cemented over the front element of the viewfinder to help correct for parallax. The kit also contains similarly colored focusing chains for checking distance. Although the camera retained the original flash cube socket -- and it can actually be used -- for correct exposures, a more powerful, continuous light source(s), and a hand-held meter, makes more sense at f22.
Sold in a "blister pack" with film. It's the same camera as the Star 110 (below), Lion King, and Mickey-Matic (Model 2) -- but with Snoopy on the front. Paddle not included.
(1985) Similar in form to the Ektralite models, the Sport has a longer body and a larger flash. It has three exposure settings -- controlled by a lever on the top. Built-in handle covers the lens when not in use. Made in Brazil.
(1980) Most Stars are nothing special, with a 22mm f11 lens -- but apparently one version has a special rose and turquoise finish. The cover flips into a handle. Uses flip-flash. Most were probably made in Brazil.
There are two versions of this model -- one was probably made in China and the other in Brazil. One is marked "Kodak Star 110 camera", the other "Kodak Star 110 camara" -- the latter probably being made in Brazil. The features and layout appear to the the same on both, with a modest change in the camera body. It has a 28mm f8 lens and a single speed of 1/125 and a built-in flash. The boxier model was also sold as the Lion King and Mickey-matic (Model B). Requires two AAA batteries.
(1979) Like the Pazzazz and Gaffiti (above), this is simply a reincarnation of the Ektralite 10 -- but in a more subdued color -- with the same three-element, 25mm f8 lens with fixed focus from 5 feet to infinity. The shutter speed is set by the film cartridge and the flash -- 1/60 with flash (turned ON), otherwise 1/125 with ISO 100 and 1/210 at ISO 400. Requires two AA batteries.
(1978) The Tele-Ektra 1 is a upgraded version of the Ektra 1 with an additional optic -- it has a 22mm f9.5 fixed focus lens that switches to a 44mm f11 lens. Three shutter speeds -- two set by the film cartridge and one set by the Flip-flash. Cover turns into handle.
(1978) A big improvement over the Tele-Ektra 1, this model has several differences/improvements. While it has both 22mm and 44mm lenses, they are now both much faster f5.6 (3/3) optics that are zone-focused from "MOUNTAINS" to "PORTRAIT" (five feet) in four steps. The shutter speeds range from 1/60 to 1/500 depending on the speed of film and flash use. There is a two position weather dial -- Sunny & EX (Cloudy) -- which sets the f-stop. A flip cover turns into a camera handle -- but is removable so the camera can use Flip-flash units or an electronic flash..
(1978) This Tele-Ektra 32 is a model that lies between the Tele-Ektra 1 and the Tele-Ektra 2 -- perhapas they should have called it the Tele-Ektra 1.5. It has a 22mm and 37mm tele lens -- not 44mm -- both f11. This allows for focusing -- near & far -- at the 37mm setting. It added a SUNNY/CLOUDY setting, like the Tele-Ektra 2, and the shutter has three speeds -- two set by the film cartridge and one set by the Flip-flash. In addition, Kodak sold a new Kodalux electronic flash with a Flip-flash socket -- and dropped the hot shoe of the Tele-Ektra 2 .
(1978) This Tele-Ektra is like the Tele-Ektra 32 but with 22mm and 44mm lenses -- both f11. It retains the SUNNY/CLOUDY setting, however.
(1978) This Tele-Ektra has a faster set of 22mm and 44mm lenses -- f8 -- and drops the SUNNY/CLOUDY switch. To deal with this, when the lens is switched to TELE, the lever focuses the lens from infinity to close-up with distance icons. A Depth-of-Field scale appears inside the flip cover/handle to avoid confusion..
(1978) This model adds the SUNNY/CLOUDY lever that the Tele-Ektra 300 lacks.
(1979) Like the Ektralite 30, this model has a built-in flash that pops out of the end of the camera -- but it has TWO lenses instead of just one. It has the 22mm of the original, but adds a 44mm -- both f9.5 It uses ISO 100 or 400 film which adjusts the shutter speed. Requires two AA batteries.
(1979) This model is a deluxe version of the Tele-Ektralite 20 in that the 22mm and 44mm lenses are faster -- f5.6 -- and focusing lenses. Focusing is from infinity to 5 feet with distance symbols in the viewfinder to help. A CdS cell -- along with the film cassette -- sets the shutter speed of 1/100 or 1/500. Requires two AA batteries.
(1980) This model is a deluxe version of the Ektralite 500. The most impressive feature of the camera is its lenses -- a multi-coated 22mm and 44mm f8 Reomar lens from Schneider Kreuznach of Germany -- an unexpectedly high quality lens for a 110 camera. It requires a 9-volt battery to power the built-in flash and the CdS photocell that -- along with the film cassette -- sets the shutter speed of 1/100 or 1/500, and automatically fires the flash when needed. A Depth-of-Field scale appears inside the flip cover/handle to avoid confusion when using the flash.
(1975) It uses the same tapered body as the Instamatic 130 -- with the hidden flash cube socket & hot shoe on the end -- but adds a longer lens. It sports 25mm and 43mm (3/3) f11 lenses with a selection switch on top. An additional switch on top can be set for SUNNY/CLOUDY -- which changes the shutter speed. Comes with a hard cover that can be used as a handle -- or removed. Made in England.
(1975) Using the same body as the Tele-Instamatic 330, this model has a pair of faster 25mm and 42mm f5.6 lenses. When switched to TELE mode, the lens focuses. In addition, the aperture can be adjusted using a scale on the top to set the correct distance for flash use.. Made in Germany.
(1976) A similar, yet more sophissticated model, of the Tele-Instamatic 430, the Tele-Instamatic adds a weather symbol lever to the top which changes the aperture and the shutter speed in the same direction.
(1975) This was one of the first 110 cameras to let you choose between a normal and a telephoto lens with a flick of the finger -- 25mm (f11) and 43mm (f11) lenses. But otherwise it is a very simple camera -- fixed focus lenses and fixed exposure. The depth-of-field is from 5 feet to infinity (25mm) and 6 feet to infinity (43mm). The shutter speed is 1/125 or 1/45 for flash. Designed for flip-flash or special flip-flash socketed electronic flash, like the Kodak E ktron II flash.
(1976) An upgraded version of the Tele-Instamatic 608, this model has faster 25mm f5.6 and 43mm f5.6 lenses. It also has manual focusing down to three feet using a distance scale on the top. Exposure is automatic with a silicon photocell which automatically sets the electronic shutter with speeds of 1/30 - 1/300 and the aperture at f5.6 or f9.3. Designed for flip-flash or special flip-flash socketed electronic flash, like the new Ektron II flash. Uses a K battery.
(1980) It's a Tele-Ektralite 20 with a different color. Requires two AA batteries.
This wasn't the only Kodak camera that had COKE stamped on it, but it might have been the only Kodak 110 so designated. Perhaps it was just a promotional device.
(1975) It's a Pocket Instamatic 10 -- from 1973 -- but uses a flashbar instead of flash cubes. Same 25mm (f11.0), (1/1) fixed-focus lens. Mechanical shutter with speed of 1/90. Flash speed of 1/40. No exposure control. But, perhaps because it was also sold over the span of more than 15 years as the Winner, Mickey-Matic [Model A], Galactic, Gimini, and other names, the Trimlite 18 might have been the most produced Kodak 110 model.
(1975) 25mm (f9.5), (3/3) fixed-focus lens. Exposure is automatic with a CDS photocell which automatically sets the electronic shutter with speeds of 1/30 - 1/160. Tripod socket. Uses a K battery.
(1975) 25mm (f8.0), (3/3) 2-zone-focusing lens -- near and far. Exposure is automatic with a CDS photocell which automatically sets the electronic shutter with speeds of 5 seconds - 1/225. A red light in the viewfinder flashes when a long exposure is needed. Tripod and cable release sockets. Uses a K battery.
(1975) 26mm (f2.7-19.5), (4/3) rangefinder-coupled focusing lens. Exposure is programmed automatic with a CDS photocell which automatically sets the electronic shutter and f-stop. Automatic speeds of 1/30 - 1/250. Tripod socket. Uses a K battery.
(1979) There were three Kodak Winner 110 cameras, but they were really the same camera with slightly different bodies -- varying only slighty in color, markings, name, covering, etc. In fact, they were all simply re-badged Trimlite 18 cameras from 1975 and could only use ISO 100 film. This one was labels simply "WINNER" and came in several broght colors. Unlike the original Trimlite 18, it was made in Mexico.
(1979) This version of the Winner was Labeled "WINNER pocket" and appeared in more subdued colors and appearance.
(1988) This version of the Winner is a "Winner" because it commemorates the 1988 Olympics -- not because of its features. It has the same f11 25mm lens with a 1/90 second shutter speed -- but it has stars and is marked 'Official Sponsor of the 1988 Olympic Games'.
