Week 51 – Kodak Ektralite 10

Introduced in 1978, the Ektralite 10 was the flagship of Kodak’s 110 film point and shoot lineup. It featured a 25mm f8 lens with fixed focus from 5 feet to infinity. Shutter speed was fixed at 1/170, and the large internal flash ran on 2 AA batteries. Production ran until 1994.

My example has a translucent sliding lens cover which also covers the viewfinder. In addition to locking the shutter release, this also makes it impossible to frame an exposure if the lens is covered.

I’ve loaded mine with Lomography Tiger 200 color film. I have had good results with it in the past. It’s a $4 thrift store find; I would recommend eBay, or you can buy a NIB example from the Film Photography Project for a wee bit more.
