Hmm ... Release date should have been April 1 ...

That is part of a photographic workflow that no one will miss. 
Related to that, a week ago, I helped host a Christmas party at 
which everal of the child attendees wore their "Christmas outfits". 
Of course, several parents brought along their digital cameras for 
the occasion (the only DSLR I saw was a Nik*n).

As soon as the parents snapped the shutter, the kids ran to the back 
of the camera to chimp with their parents. Those kids will grow up 
never believing that, at one time, the shutter closed and you had to 
wait several days (or, horrors, work with chemicals yourself) before 
you got the results. :-o
