It's interesting that you mention battery-operated cameras.  When you 
lose both electricity and water, the only thing that is capable of 
going on producing new output  is a Polaroid.  Digital cameras are 
completely useless; even the most mechanical M cannot produce output, 
since you can't develop film without huge volumes of water, something 
which goes bye-bye in tandem with the electricity (since pumps don't 

Makes you think a little.
