I used a 360 and 365 for many years at work to document research experiments. I don't recall the date but got the 360 within a month of its release. They were great simple cameras but had two serious flaws in design. First, the release button did not take the shot when depressed. Kodak engineers decided it would make clearer pictures if it captured an image when the button was released. I had a discussion with an engineer in San Diego about that and that there was a long delay in the image acquisition which made action shots almost impossible. The second thing was a camera killer. The lens cap fit over the non movable part of the lens base which caused the motor to fight with the lens cap if bumped the power button or forgot to remove the cap. Both cameras finally had trouble getting the lens out to power up. That said I used them for over 15 years. The 360 was the first digital camera we had and was a huge time saver over film. I recall the 365 had a fix for one or both issues.
