   Wong Ting: I am not a photographer. I do take all different type of instant film in daily life I think digital camera not the killer to analog film or instant camera, when more people use digital camera, more people love to take a photo in there life more people will join the analog or instant photography.

   Wong Ting: Yes, I still collect, but I don't have any goal in number. I think it is very hard to found more. I thing I only can found 100 more in next 10 years, because there is no new model and most of the camera I don't have is rare one.

   WRA: How much your collection is worth?
   Wong Ting: I thing around US100,000 - US130,000.
