Kodak Instamatic camera 255-X, made by Kodak Limited in England between 1971 and 1977.

The Instamatic camera range was a series of inexpensive, easy-to-use and easy-to-load cameras with built-in flash capacity, that were first launched in 1963. The range proved to be immensely popular and was in production for over 20 years.

The X-Series Instamatic was a new version of the Instamatic camera range introduced in 1970, that used the type-X 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. They just clicked easily onto the top of the camera and a warning message popped up in the view-finder if a used bulb was in the picture-taking position.
