Kodak Brownie 'Starlet' Camera with Kodak Supermite flasholder attached, made by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd in Melbourne circa 1958-1966.

This was the second camera model to be assembled, packaged and distributed by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd. The Star series of cameras were assembled from more than 95% Australian parts. They were also the first low-priced cameras "designed to take color slides, as well as color and black-and-white snapshots". Millions of these cameras were sold around the world during the 1960s due to their ease of use, price-point, capability for flash photography and multiple film formats. (Kodakery, No. 82, September 1977, p3.)

This camera came with a plastic carry case made by Denzil Don in Melbourne.
