Just got tipped by my friend Bob to the existence of this: “Flashgun Freddie,” an episode of The Flintstones from 1962. Fred and Barney buy themselves a Polarock instant camera, and hijinx ensue.

Of course, I mostly enjoyed watching the camera work. First you aim and focus…







Then the, er, development mechanism snaps into action…







And then Wilma gets her photo.







It’s the modern stone-age camera! Make your own remarks about technological dinosaurs, extinction, etc.
