Kodak, like Polaroid, isn't well these days (it's now in Chapter 11 bankruptcy), but a generation of consumers still look favourably on the brand. Back in 1963, 15 years after the Polaroid instant camera was introduced, Kodak unveiled the Instamatic (in photo above on right side, with an Eastman Kodak Brownie on the left), with its easy-load film cartridge. The cameras were a hit with amateur photographers, who snapped up more than 50 million Instamatics by 1970. The camera's success led names like Canon and Olympus to release their own easy-load cameras. The Instamatic brand grew over the years, becoming available in several formats and designs, before Kodak canned the line in 1988.
