In 1947 Polaroid had launched the first instantaneous camera (the Land Camera) and then successfully marketed several models of this type of camera.

This led to Kodak, at that time, leader in the market of photographic films and protagonist in the process of evolution of photography, to launch in 1976 his series of instant cameras Kodak Instant EK4 and EK6, and with them the new Instant movie for instant copies.

However, in April 1976, six days after the launch of the EK4 and EK6 models, Polaroid filed a lawsuit against Kodak for the violation of several of its patents. 10 years later, a judge agreed with Polaroid and Kodak had to withdraw from the instant photography market.

Although the system used by the Kodak instant cameras had an appearance similar to that of the Polaroid SX-70, its chemistry and operation were very different, even with certain advantages.
