The Kodak Instamatic 333X was manufactured in Germany between 1970 and 1971.

For colour prints, KODACOLOR-X Film was recommended. For colour projection slides, KODACHROME-X or KODAK-EKTACHROME-X Film was preferred; and for black and white prints, KODAK VERICHROME Pan Film was used.

The electronic shutter was coupled to the CDS cell, which gave a more accurate exposure of the pictures. At the time, the camera cost 299 Francs.
