A very rare modern Kodak, well covered in an article that appears at this site.
While it appears to be “just another Kodak 110”, the Galactic is a rare camera, and little information is known about
it. I acquired my Galactic almost accidentally, bidding on it in the very early days of Ebay where it was listed as
just “ Kodak camera”.I really had no idea what it was , but it was a Kodak camera I did not have and I got it for
a song.I bought it from a man in the US who claimed he had been a Kodak salesman in the late 80’s, and had
been given a Galactic outfit as a sales sample and had actually taken orders from his round of camera shops and labs.
But , he said, the Galactic never actually went into production, and he just kept the sample. By the time I realized
what it was I had , all information regarding his ID etc had been lost. Enquiries to what used to be the patent
museum at Kodak in Rochester suggested this may have been the case with this little camera, but anecdotally only,
as there were no records of it.

    I don't use this site often, and am having trouble navigating it.Just got a question from Brandice, so hope you get this answer.I have had 3 of these cameras in the last 2 years, aside from the one I have shown above which is still in my collection.I bought a complete outfit from a US dealer for $US20. I sold that outfit for $US45. I got given a camera only, that sold on ebay for $A28 I think, and I got a 2nd outfit again from ebay in the US and I think I paid about $US30 for it. I gave it to a friend as a birhtday present.
    Hope this helps.You can contact me at ozdakk@gmail.com
