Kodak Instamatic 25

Shorter but slightly taller than most other 126 Instamatics, this camera seems to have been designed by a different team to all the others in the range. Sunny/cloudy exposure settings and a "hot-shoe" for the Instamatic Flasholder complete the specification of this little camera. The one pictured above is actually a "camara", having been produced in Spain, though they were produced in the UK as well, both with all-black writing and with a separate Kodak logo, as seen below. I have also seen reference to this model having been produced in the Argentine, Brazil and Australia, indeed about 10 variations have been noted. A premium version was available as the Instamatic 26.

Instamatic 25 Variations

  1. Kodak in red on separate inset silver plate, top left - 25 in red on lens plate top centre - "wind to stop" on film window on back - two silver circles around lens - continuous fine ribbing on base (see 8) - made in England.

  3. Kodak in black on lens plate lower left - 25 in black on lens plate top centre - "Instamatic" in heavy type - no silver circles around lens - film window blank - made in England.
