The Kodak World's Fair Flash is a camera for 127 roll film and was released for the 1964/1965 New York World's Fair. It featured a single-speed shutter, and used the 4x4cm picture format. Its original price was $7.95. The camera has a fixed focus lens and Single Speed Rotary shutter. It is similar to the Hawkeye Flashfun and was sold only at the New York World's Fair. The camera had a fixed plastic roof over the lens with the emblem of the World’s Fair and its name on the sticker. The 1964-1965 World’s Fair was the third to be held in New York City. It was held over two six-month periods and showcased American culture and technology. Other features were a built in flash that used the AG-1 flash bulbs, an optical viewfinder, clear plastic escutcheon around the lens, two strap attach points, frame advance knob on the bottom of the camera, a red round window for frame count on the back of the camera, and a battery compartment that housed two AA batteries to power the flash unit. The back of the cameras flash unit has an instructional chart for use of the flash with distances when using Verichrome Pan or color film. It also recommends use of a flash guard that was available for the camera. With Kodak it is always unclear how many were sold but the Fair was very successful so 20,000 or more. By Kodak standards this is a small number.
