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 !

I had one of those, was it the 50 or more advanced 100 with the pop up flash. I still have examples of those.
