  • Vintage Polaroid OneStep Closeup Instant 600 Film Camera. This is part of a new generation models produced around 1997. The shutter is electronic; automatic speed between 1/4-1/200 sec. The integral auto flash works in low light but cannot be forced on or off.
  • The Canon EOS 650 is a 35 mm single-lens reflex camera. It was introduced on 2 March 1987.
  • The Canon T50, introduced in March 1983 and discontinued in December 1989, was the first in Canon’s new T series of 35mm single-lens reflex cameras compatible with Canon’s FD lens mount.
  • Stereo Realist is a stereo camera that was manufactured by the David White Company from 1947 to 1971. It was the most popular 35mm stereo camera ever manufactured and started the era of stereo photography for the masses that continued even after it was no longer manufactured.
  • Kodak Automatic and Motormatic series were Kodak’s last American made 35mm cameras, and their first automatic exposure 35mm cameras. Tracing their original roots back to the Kodak 35 of 1938, there were seven different models; the first, the Kodak Automatic 35, was introduced in 1959 while the last, the Motormatic 35R4, was introduced in 1965. Production ceased in 1969.
  • The Kodak Instamatic 404 is a series of inexpensive, easy-to-load 126 and 110 cameras made by Kodak beginning in 1963. The Instamatic was immensely successful, introducing a generation to low-cost photography and spawning numerous imitators. During its heyday, the range was so ubiquitous that the Instamatic name is still frequently used (erroneously) to refer to any inexpensive point-and-shoot camera. (It is also frequently used incorrectly to describe Kodak’s line of instant-picture cameras, the Kodamatic series.).  The Instamatic name was also used by Kodak on some Super 8-based home-cine cameras.
