"Kodamatic 960

With faceplate attached

Why do I mention the faceplate?

In 1976, Polaroid’s only great competitor, Eastman Kodak, launched its own line of instant cameras. Kodak’s lawyers and engineers believed that they’d dodged and weaved their way around Polaroid’s patents; Polaroid emphatically disagreed, and a week later sued. Fourteen and a half years in court ensued, and Polaroid won. Kodak had to write a check for the largest settlement ever paid out in a patent trial—$925 million—and Judge Rya Sobel, in a serious rebuke, barred the company from the instant-photo business altogether. Owing to a class-action suit, Kodak had to buy back all the cameras for which it could no longer supply film. Kodak sent out a letter* telling customers to mail in the faceplate to get a refund. Most customers mailed them in, but not this one.

Unlike the earlier Kodak instant cameras, most of which were clunky, ugly things, this one’s not bad. It’s not nearly as elegant as an SX-70, nor is it an SLR, but it pops up in somewhat the same way."
