    It's the subject that makes the picture.
    Very true, but the photographer has to be there - in the right place - at the right time, with a camera.
    I'm into painting with light - NOT painting by numbers!

    Best selling doesn't make it the best. Canon has sold boatloads of its various EOS and Rebel cameras. Good cameras? Yes. Best cameras? Maybe, but probably not, especially with their entry level cameras.

    I think trying to nail down the best camera ever would be dIifficult, maybe impossible, to decide. Best made? Best features? Best lenses? Easiest to use? And nearly everyone has different opinions on what they think would be the best.

    I could list maybe 10 cameras that I think might be the best, and they're all different from each other.

    I admittedly had to look it up... I've never heard of this camera hehe, I've also never seen one before...

    The picture I pulled up from google is this.. .http://dnok91peocsw3.cloudfront.net/...-612x612-1.png

    Why does it have 35mm and 127? next to it? isn't it a 110 camera?

    Also.... why would more good photo's come from this camera? just because of the sheer number of shots taken with it? I can't imagine110 film delivering images you could blow up very big.

    It is the classic 126 camera - square negatives or slides.

    Probably the largest selling camera ever, and just about foolproof to use in almost all typical situations.

    A camera doesn't have to yield images that "blow up very big" in order to create good or even great photographs.

    Oh 126! Ok those images aren't as bad as 110 then being 35mm so it's just up to the plastic lenses then

    Yes I know but that's like saying Advantix could make nice images...

    PE and I went back and forth on this, I forgot to mention to him that I took a roll and shot it recently to prove myself wrong and him right, let me tell you the images are TERRIBLE but I'm going to take my scanner soon and instead of lab scans I'll scan them myself and see if they are any better, but even the 5x7's from the lab look TERRIBLE and I would never use them for anything. So I can't imagine 110 much different, I had a 110 camera as a kid and I've looked at those too and they look the same, all blotchy and "pixelated" it's just terrible. Haha

    I admit they didn't make as many good films for those systems as they did for 35mm but damn it's bad LOL

    So, I agree to a point but even my 1.2 megapixel digital camera looks better than those advantix shots.
