Agfa Optima

When: 1959
Why: first fully automatic exposure, 35mm camera.

Fully automatic exposure and it's green! No batteries needed! In the next several years there were a lot of auto-exposure cameras popping up there or there, and guess what, trend continues until now. Try to find a camera without fully automatic settings. Though current cameras do require "food" out of the power lines.
