Can you list the top facts and stats about Instamatic?

Summarize this article for a 10 year old


The Instamatic is a series of inexpensive, easy-to-load 126 and 110 cameras made by Kodak beginning in 1963.[1] The Instamatic was immensely successful, introducing a generation to low-cost photography and spawning numerous imitators.

For the film formats associated with the Instamatic and Pocket Instamatic camera ranges, see 126 film and 110 film respectively.

During its heyday, the range was so ubiquitous that the Instamatic name is still frequently used as a generic trademark to refer to any inexpensive point-and-shoot camera. It is also frequently used incorrectly to describe Kodak's Kodamatic line of instant-picture cameras.

The Instamatic name was also used by Kodak on some Super 8-based home-cine cameras.[2]
