Kodak Brownie Starmite II camera manufactured by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd between 1962 and 1967.

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.

Kodak shifted its camera making department from its Abbotsford factory to its new Coburg factory in 1963, and it is unclear when and where this particular camera was made.

This object is part of the Kodak Heritage 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.
