Scope and content

Item is a battery-powered Colourburst 200 instant camera. The camera was produced by Kodak to replace the EK6 and was priced to compete with the Polaroid Pronto! series. It has a tiny electric motor powered by one J‐size battery that is good for a minimum of 10 packs of film. This model also has a low‐light signal that indicates when you should switch to flash, as well as a battery check light.
Colorburst cameras offer a focusing scale around the lens, and a zooming circle in the finder as a focusing aid. This model has an automatic electronic shutters, focus‐linked flash automation, and a sensor that prevents the flash from firing if the safety cover is in place or the film pack is empty
