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?

10/17 most of these cameras I never heard of. I had a 126 film cartridge camera "instamatic" in the '70's...a 35mm SLR in the '80's-'90's... and a digital movie and still camera today.

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.
