Everything works. The battery box is stuck with 2 corroded AA batteries. There's no flash or film reader so I don't see the need for batteries. They may have some function. But otherwise, the advance works, film door works, shutter works, and shutter button works. Don't forget to check out the rest of my shop!!! More, older or newer, cameras and accessories to come!!! Ask questions if you have them :)

History

Kodak Instamatic 50 camera in the collection of the Science Museum Group
The Instamatic 50 was the first pocket camera in the Instamatic line to be released in the UK in 1963. The first Instamatic model to be made available in the US was the 100. With their low cost and simplicity of usage, using 126 and 110 film cartridges, Instamatics were an instant hit.

A line of cameras using Kodak's easy-load 126 cartridge film cameras were marketed under the brand name "Instamatic." Both in terms of loading ease and convenience of use, these cameras were quite revolutionary at the time. George Eastman's vision of democratising photography was realised by the capacity to capture the moment, as encapsulated in the phrase "You Press the Button, We Do the Rest." The Instamatic 50 was the initial model, which was released in February 1963. Since Kodak 126 Instamatics were so popular and had sold 60 million units by 1976, the term "Instamatic" has come to refer to all basic point-and-shoot cameras that use a cartridge.
