Cardboard poster advertising Kodak 8mm movie cameras. The poster features the slogan 'Make your family Movie Stars with the Kodak movie camera...for less than £20' and connects in with a broader print and television advertising campaign from this time. The poster features and image of a man holding up a movie camera to his eye. He is superimposed over a scene of two boys running with a kite in a park. This poster was likely used as point of sale advertising.

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.

This poster 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.
