'Kodak Sales News' March / April 1971 newsletter, published by Kodak (Australasia) Pty Ltd, Coburg, Victoria.

Kodak Sales News was distributed to Kodak dealers and retailers throughout the country to keep them abreast of the latest Kodak products, price changes, and advertising campaigns. Some issues included a supplement with extra information and pricing details.

This issue contains a supplementary insert titled 'Staff Schooler' which contains 10 questions and answers about Kodak Instamatic X Cameras. The X-Series Instamatic camera was a new version of the Instamatic camera range introduced in 1970 that used the X-type Magicube flash, hence the name. Magicubes were slightly larger than conventional flashcubes and operated with self-powered flash technology, doing away with the need for batteries.

This document is part of the Kodak Heritage Collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.
