More information:

Manufactured between 1976 and 1978 by Eastman Kodak Co. The motorized EK6, was introduced when Kodak entered the instant film market. It has a vertically oriented body with a folded optical path using internal mirrors. It has a 137mm f/11 lens that has it’s focusing marked in both zones and feet/meters. It used a Flipflash on the top and used a “J pack” 6V battery to power the auto exposure system. An auto ejection system to slide out the photos and you watched them develop in front of you similar to the Polaroid SX-70—however, the Kodak instant film (later called “Colorburst”) was of a rectangular format instead of square. So, this is the camera that eventually led to the largest patent infringement lawsuit and judgment in history. Despite what anyone says, the Kodak system was good—very good.
