I about spit coffee all over my keyboard when I read this, but you did back it up with good examples. I got one of the first year instamatics for christmas when I was in 1st grade and had a lot of fun with it. Later in high school I found it in the drawer and decided to use it again. It had been dropped and the view finder had fallen out and was lost so it was truly a point and shoot. The pictures were great!
