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.
