Name Change

The name of this page should be amended to read "Imperial Magimatic X50," don't you think? For instance, the Kodak Instamatic 44 page is not called simply "Instamatic 44." Therefore, somebody needs to redirect it to the proper name of Imperial Magimatic X50. HaarFager (talk) 01:30, 17 August 2017 (CDT)

I just noticed that I had recommended a name change for the page back a couple years ago. I have taken care of this now. HaarFager (talk) 18:01, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

Similar Cameras

I just noticed tonight that an Imperial Magimatic X50 126 camera, other than the front face of the camera, is identical to the Argus Carefree 126 camera. They're both made so that any writing is on aluminum plates with tabs so that they can be inserted into the plastic body. Very convenient for renaming a camera if you need to. I also notice that the Argus Carefree was made in 1967, while the Imperial Magimatic X50 was introduced in 1975. This leads me to believe that Imperial acquired the molds to some of Argus' cameras and did a little work to them and reused them. I wonder if there's a way to confirm or deny this?
