Price ticket for a Kodak Brownie Starmite II Camera, costing £4.17.6. The ticket is white, yellow and green, and is unused.

Starmite cameras were part of the Kodak Star series of affordable and highly popular fixed-lens plastic body cameras with built-in flash or flash attachment. Ten million of the Star series cameras were sold in five years in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

The Brownie Starmite was introduced globally in the late 1950s but was first made in Australia after 1958. It is unclear when the Starmite stopped being made.

This is 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.
