The Magimatic X50 126 Magicube Camera is a simple viewfinder camera for Kodapak film cartridges. It was made by Imperial in the U.S.A. and used Magicubes for flash photography instead of flashcubes or bulbs like earlier Imperial 126 cameras such as the Imperial Instant Load 900, hence its name. The Magicube let cameras such as these have flash capability without needing batteries. The Magimatic X50 has a large thumb wheel film advance, auto flash cub advance, frame view window on the back of the camera, and a handy carry strap. The shutter is approximately 1/100 of a second and the aperture is about 5.6. The camera was introduced in 1975 as a semi copy of the Kodak line of instamatics. The X in the X50 was intended to remind you that you use only the X-type Magicubes.
