Description:

This .blend file, contain a very, very low poly model of the popular old(1963) film camera "Kodak Instamatic 100".

The Instamatic was immensely successful, introducing a generation to low-cost photography and spawning numerous imitators. They were the first cameras to utilize Kodak's new 126 format. The easy-load film cartridge made the cameras very inexpensive to produce, as it provided the film backing plate and exposure counter itself and thus saved considerable design complexity and manufacturing cost for the cameras.

The Instamatic was an instant success; more than 50 million Instamatic cameras were produced between 1963 and 1970. Kodak even gave away a considerable number in a joint promotion with Scott paper towels in the early 1970s in order to generate a large number of new photographers and stimulate lasting demand for its film business.

This camera is a revolution in popular photography, thats why I modeled, and is pretty nice loking.

Soon I'll upload the high poly count model (and high resolution textures)

    Such a blast from the past! and such an icon too ;)

    I had one of these when I was around 7-8, I'm now 40 - so a very memorable camera, I took my first pics with it - although as I recall I had my finger over the lens!
