With our digital cameras with instant view screens and instant print outs if desired, it’s easy to forget what a pain it once was to take a simple snapshot. First of all, you had to buy film, then load it, then get it developed. And, if this ad from 1974 is to be believed, that year marked the first time you could get film at a grocery store, rather than some specialty photo shop. Amazing.
Before Mark Hamill was shooting lasers in a galaxy far, far away he was shooting pictures with the Kodak Tele-Instamatic camera in 1971.
If you look and listen closely, the woman he is photographing is Jan Brady herself, Eve Plumb.
I found this gem of a Halloween ad on Neatocoolville’s wonderful page on Flickr. The EK6 was not not only an instant camera, it was also fully motorized. Perfect for Halloween party photos in the 1970s.
A sample of some of the earliest color motion picture film you will see.
