The Brownie Starmite was one of a very successful range of "star" cameras made by Kodak in the early 1960s. It took 12 square 4x4cm (which is the smallest "medium format" size) images on 127 film. The only adjustment was a lever below the lens, giving EV 13 & 14 (marked 'Color' & 'B&W' on the original Starmite; 'Flash' & 'Daylight' on the Starmite II) by adjusting the aperture. The Ev 13 setting is the equivalent of f/11 and Ev 14 is about f/16. It also had double-exposure prevention.
