Ed:  These cameras were huge, in size.  There was a lawsuit about this camera as it was sold "door to door"
and the prices were very high ($491.60) as the commission for each sale had to be paid to the salesman.
I saw one of these in a VT camera store.  They were truly larger then the old Polaroid, and heavier.
Most likely the batteries, that were rechargeable, did not last long and needed an overnight charge.
Plus, the flash would last for only one roll of film as the flash went off with indoor and outdoor shots,
then an overnight charge would be required again.  So only 10 shots per 18 hour charge.
Kind of stupid for a motor driven camera.
