Scope and content

Item consists of a Kodak Instamatic M4. It is a super 8 film cartridge camera that was released at the same time as the Instamatic M2, and M6, as well as the projectors Instamatic M50, M70, M80, M90 and M100 when Kodak first launched the Super 8 mm film format. Super 8mm film was the same as standard 8mm film, but was loaded into a plastic cartridge that could contain 50 feet of film. The image area of Super 8 film was 50% larger than standard 8mm because of a new design of picture vs. sprocket hole, and the cartridge format allowed for movie cameras to become easy enough for anyone to use.
