So my choices are 1, -1, -3,- 3, more than 10, 0.

Not sure how you own a negative number of cameras. Maybe that's if you in fact OWE someone a camera (or three).

Simple. If you just barely have 7, then it's 4-7. If you almost have more than 7, then it's 7-10.

My bag of photodiodes counts, doesn't it? They are basically 1-pixel cameras.

I dunno - my 4yo has a \$30 camera, 640x480 video and 3MP still. It's not state of the art by any stretch, but right now the quality of the picture is far more limited by user skill than technical quality. (And I don't mind her running around with it, because.. well... it's 30 bucks.

I'm trying to figure out why the poll has two "I owe the universe three cameras" options. (Doesn't anyone actually use algebra properly anymore?)

Yes, but your's is 4 years old, a new kids should come with much better cameras. And come on, it would be totally worth it to spend an extra \$70 4 years ago and get a 12MP model. Soon kids will be coming with a giga-pixel as standard, then where will your 3MP version be? How are you going to feel explaining to him that his resolution is so bad because you would only folk out \$30...

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
