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.
- And it would help if you would edit a simple error like that rather than complaining and leaving it. Fixed now. Boffy b 10:34, 2004 Dec 19 (UTC)
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)
