Kodak - Ektra 200 camera




My first camera - Dec 1983 to Dec 1986


Kodak used the name Pocket Instamatic for some of their 110 cartridge cameras; other 110 models were branded Ektra or Ektralite.

Kodak Ektra 200 are made in Germany from 1980 and its body all plastic, batteries not required. It has flip flash port and a Kodar 22mm lens. There is no focusing, aperture settings or shutter speed dials, a pure point and shoot camera.

110 is a cartridge-based film format used in still photography. It was introduced by Kodak in 1972. 110 is essentially a miniaturised version of Kodak's earlier 126 film format. Each frame is 13 17 mm (0.51 0.67 in), with one registration hole.

The film is fully housed in a plastic cartridge, which also registers the image when the film is advanced. There is a continuous backing paper, and the frame number and film type are visible through a window at the rear of the cartridge. The film does not need to be rewound and is very simple to load and unload. It is pre-exposed with frame  lines and numbers, a feature intended to make it easier and more efficient for photofinishers to print. Wind the film until you stop seeing X and when you start seeing number 1 on the frame counter you are ready to take photos.
Unlike later competing formats, such as disc and APS film, processed 110 negatives were returned in strips, without the original cartridge.

Flipflash featured an array of 8 or 10 bulbs in a flat rectangular arrangement, each bulb placed horizontally, one above the other. Fuses selected the next bulb to fire; when half the bulbs were used, the photographer had to invert the Flipflash - which had a connector on both ends - to use the remainder (hence the name). The camera had a small rectangular socket to mount the Flipflash.
