Instamatic 124

I love my camera collection. One of my favorites is my Kodac Instamatic 124. Its so small and simple that... well I'll let you see for yourself.

Isn't that neat looking? I have the original box with flash cubes and instruction manual and everything. The manual is amazing check it out:

I doubt anybody thinks these are as interesting as I do. Manuals to old cameras are so full of wonderful illustrations and depictions of people having way more fun than you can actually have with a camera. It helps that I'm just not getting into analog photography. It's so weird to get into the mindset of permanence and lack of control. You can't change what you've shot and you only have so many shots to take. You naturally want to have absolute control to make those the best shots ever, but you really don't have any control. Leastways I don't.
