Kodak Instamatic 44

Kodak Instamatic 44
This Kodak Instamatic 44 was sold between 1969 and 1973. When it was first released, it cost $9.95 and used 126 film cartridges. Another old camera that I got from a relative. I haven't been able to use this one yet because the inside mechanisms don't seem to work. If I can figure out how to get it apart and clean and oil it, maybe I can get it to work and use it.

The CAMEROSITY code for this camera is YOSY, which translates to a manufacturing period of 06/[19]70.

There was a part inside that had broken and it's purpose was to help trip the shutter. So I have removed the piece and intend on using the camera by taking a long exposure at night and using a piece of black tape over the lens to act as a sort of "shutter." As long as the camera is held securely in place, I should be able to get it to work and produce an image.
