Kodak Disposable Cameras

Advantages: Good value, good pictures, easy to use/lightweight
I bought a pack of of these for a special occasion as I wanted to have the photographs in an album rather than on my digital camera or laptop. I could of just printed the pictures off of my laptop, but I like the glossy finish that photographs have to them so I personally think that they look nicer.
I paid £12.25 for a pack of three cameras which came with free delivery from Amazon, which works out at just over £4 each which seems reasonable. Each camera has 27 exposures (pictures) which I think is really good value for £4 although you do have to keep in consideration the price of getting the photos developed - I got mine developed in store at Boots for £2.99 for 24 photos, which because I had 3 cameras wasn't excactly cheap however it wasn't too bad but would definetly get expensive if you used the service alot and I am sure there are probably cheaper options.
Each camera is made out of lightweight plastic which is black and has yellow and red detail over the top. It's a unisex design and is also quite a good camera for kids to use as the bright colours catch the attention of little ones. The camera has a basic lay out - i'm sure most of you have seen/used a disposable camera atleast once, so I won't go into detail about the excact technical details and every inch of what it looks like.
The kodak disposable cameras definetly aren't the sleekest cameras but considering how bulky they are compared to modern day digital cameras they are really lightweight and are easy for almost anyone to use. On the back of the camera it has basic instructions so there is no confusion if you are not used to using disposable cameras. To take a picture you simply place it infront on you to be able to see through the viewing lens at the person/item you are photographing and once you are happy with the angle you just simply press the shutter on the top.
The camera has a suprisingly good flash which is handy for when it is dark outside or when there is limited amounts of daylight (in doors etc) and you want to capture a special moment. I have lots of pictures that were taken with the flash on and i'd say 8/10 are of decent quality while the others have a slight 'burn' mark on them where it has been overexposed - i'm sure you'll know what I mean. Pictures taken in good lighting look brilliant, very clear and vivid with accurate colours and plenty of detail. I'd say that the Kodak ones have produced the best photographs out of any other disposable cameras I have owned as the pictures (unless taken in dim light) are really colourful and clear. The ones I took are now in a photo album and look great.
Kodak also do a range of waterproof disposable cameras so I would reccomend getting one for anyone who is going to a waterpark/the beach etc and has an expensive digital camera they don't want to risk getting wet. The cameras also act as a toy for kids without worrying they will break it because even if they do it's not a disaster at £4 per camera!
Overall I am really pleased with the outcome of my photographs and I found the camera to be easy to use. I'd reccomend the camera to anyone who is interested in getting a disposable camera for an upcoming occasion/holiday etc.
Summary: Produces good pictures
