When introduced in 1964, the Instamatic 800 was the highest-spec model in the Instamatic series of cameras for 126 film cartridges from Kodak. Its unique features included a coupled rangefinder and a quirky spring-driven film advance tensioned with a "pull tape" which extends from the bottom of the body. A selenium meter cell provides for autoexposure and there is a flip up reflector for AG-1 flashbulbs.

The Instamatic 804 and Instamatic 814 were similar followup models, updated for flashcubes and with a CdS meter cell, respectively.
