A promotional price ticket for the Kodak Instamatic 500 Camera, featuring the catch phrase 'Just drop the film in and it's loaded!', alongside a cartoon illustration of a woman taking a picture. This stressed the ease of use and accessibility of the Instamatic camera, while also displaying the price of the camera and case at 51 pounds, 6 shillings. Cardboard tickets like this would have been given to Kodak dealers and retailers for use in their merchandising units and displays.

Part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
