Cameras have changed dramatically over the last sixty years. It used to be a luxury just to have sound and video recorded together. Nowadays, cameras can go almost anywhere and do almost anything – and capture it all in high definition!

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and look at camera advertisements from years past. Can you properly place each ad in the right decade?

You really know your cameras.

No, I really don't. I chose the year by the clothes and hairstyles of the people in the ads, those that had them.

14/17, and guessed. back in the 60's my Dad had a movie camera, and thought he was Cecil DeMille. Even had a little editing machine. I have them on DVD now, but they're still terrible.

You're no shutterbug. Better luck next time!
I'm that guy you always wondered if he was real.
I'm the one who couldn't take any picture, good or otherwise, with a Polaroid.

Sadly, no Polaroid Swinger.

Sing it if you know it:
"It's more than a camera, it's almost alive, it's only nineteen dollars and ninety-five..."

12 out of 17. I must've been out to Lunch. No wonder I can't take a good pic. Worse then a Kodak moment. Hocus pocus focus .

You're no shutterbug. Better luck next time! Ok, in my defense I am obviously no camera expert. I take lousy pictures no matter which one I use.
