The Kodak Pocket Instamatic 300 was one of Kodak's pocket cameras for the type No. 110 16mm film cartridges, one of a variety of Instamatic 110 camera types. The camera has a slide selector switch for various apertures with weather symbols for dark clouds, cloudy, normal, sunny and bright mountain sun. The camera also has a fixed 26mm f5.6 Triplet lens and two shutter speeds. The lower of the two shutter speeds is only available when a flashcube is fitted or the extender is plugged in. The normal aperture setting is used when the Magicube is inserted in the socket provided on the top of the camera. The flash reaching from 1.2 meters to 5 meters, depending on selected aperture and Magicube rating. The 300 was manufacturer by Kodak AG (German branch of the Kodak Company) and launched in 1972 then discontinued in 1975. The dimensions are 114×55×27mm. Most of these cameras were sold in a kit with a Magicube 3 inch extender that drastically reduced the instances of red eye. The Magicube needed no batteries to fire and this was an advantage over other forms of flash bulbs of the time. Most kits came with the extender, one Magicube, roll of film, instruction booklet, carry strap, and the camera. Some 300’s came with a blue shutter button and others were black with no other distinction between them. The camera also has a bright-line viewfinder with parallax marks and a used-bulb warning for the Magicube socket.
