Kodak Instamatic
In reply to Norge65, Oct 16, 2013

My Dad's Kodak Instamatic (126 cartridge camera).

It was awesome !  It was kept in a plastic hard shell case with red flocking.  It had a big knob on the top that you'd wind up for spring loaded film advance that sounded so cool after each shot.  And flash cubes !  It didn't get any better than that.

Then I bought my own camera.  A Kodak 110 with a dual lens - move a slide to switch between wide angle and tele.  And instead of rotating flash bulbs, it used flash strips with 10 flashes per strip !

The gold old days
