The Kodak PartyTime II instant camera was almost identical to the Fiesta and PartyTime. The Fiesta released first in 1979 marketed primarily to the Spanish speaking population. One side of the instruction pamphlet was written in Spanish, turn it over and you had English. The PartyTime released one year later in all markets and both cameras were discontinued in 1982 with the release of the PartyTime II. The most widely used film in the cameras was the Kodak Instant Color Film PR144-10 and the cameras used a spreader bar chemical dispersal method similar to Polaroids of the era. The PR144-10 film worked in all Kodak cameras that were not marked KODAMATIC and TRIMPRINT like the PartyTime II that is marked Kodamatic and used Kodak HS144-10 film. The cameras have an electronic shutter, electronic exposure, plus had a flash bar socket that was all powered by a ((# 539 Eveready) (# 7K67 Duracell)) size J 6 volt battery in a compartment in the back of the camera. The lens and optical viewfinder are made of plastic and about 30mm optically. The cameras also have a light/dark slide adjuster for exposure control and the PartyTime plus Fiesta have a landscape ¼ inch 20 thread tripod socket that was dropped on the PartyTime II. In 1985 Polaroid won the ongoing legal battle with Kodak and along with a hefty fine, all of Kodak’s instant cameras/film was discontinued.
