    I often hear people incorrectly refer to Polaroid cameras as "Instamatics"

    Instamatic was Kodak's trademark name for their easy-load 126 cartridge film cameras, launched in Feb 1963 with the Instamatic 50. Kodak then called some of their 110 cameras Pocket Instamatic in the 1970's.
    I also have a Kodak 100 126 that is very similar to the 104.

    Jacuzzi
    Kleenex

    Sometimes, a trademark name becomes so common it enters the everyday language.

    I guess this could be called the last of the Kodak Retinas. Mine has the f1.9 Schneider lens. It took very sharp images.

    Had a poxy little Keystone that took 126 when I was a tyke. Craptastic camera but it froze so many memories! Always loaded, it got me into the deplorable habit of buying film and stashing it in my Mom's 'fridge. At least that's how she saw it.
