It would help to edit your postings before making them public. For example:

The first model released in the US was basic the Instamatic 100 model.

The following statement was deleted from the article, since no patents for the Instamatic (or any other invention) appear under this name:

"The inventor of the Instamatic Camera was Douglass Coate Harvey Sr. He died Friday, Sept. 26th at 1:20am."

Several patents for the Instamatic appear under the name Dean McCormack Peterson, who is correctly identified earlier in the article as the lead designer of the camera. Tony092357 (talk) 15:16, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
