==Kodak Sport Single Use Camera==
Living on an island means that we get to spend far more time down the beach than the majority of other English people and I absolutely love it as does little Jack. The water maybe freezing more or less all the time but we still venture in and have a good go at swimming and splashing around.
The Kodak Sport Single Use Camera is ideal if you don't fancy taking your all singing all dancing digital camera to the beach as this one offers a great protection against the elements including water and can even take shots under the sea!
We picked up this camera from Boots for around £5 but it was on a 3 for 2 offer with all the other single use camera and I purchased three at the same time. Using digital cameras is okay but I miss having to get my prints printed out and seeing what I have taken. Digital has just lost all the fun for me.
The Kodak Camera is a chunky blue plastic design that looks what it is, a disposable camera. It does however have a rather sporty and a little better than the cardboard encased cameras I have bought before. The camera will take 27 single shots and the display on the top will let you know how many shots you have remaining in the camera which is very helpful.
Each time you take a picture you have to wind the camera on with the big chunky dial on top of the camera. This is easy to do with a good grip and something that, having been using digital for so long, feels rather alien.
The viewfinder of the camera is another alien aspect that with the digital camera I own having the LCD display you forget all about looking through one of these but after a few shots it becomes natural again and the area to look through although small does the job needed. Taking each picture is simple with the push button on the top and I must say that using it and not having to worry about protecting it all the time was one of the main draws.
We used the camera on the beach on a few occasions before all the film was used up. I took a few in the water but to be fair the murky English sea wasn't appealing enough to go to the depths that this is waterproof to so I can't comment on how it fairs under the sea. However on taking the camera to Boots to be processed and paying the excessive charges (you also forget about these when using a digital camera and printing from home) was another easy step and I couldn't wait to get the pictures back.
The quality of the pictures was really rather good and I think probably has inproved a bit since I used to use these camera on a regular basis. There was only 1 or 2 out of the whole batch that were slightly blurry but I suspect this was more to do with the picture taker than the camera itself. Most of the photos came out sharp and clear and really not far off the quality of a basic digital camera, maybe slightly better.
Overall I was really impressed with this camera. I think the photos I got were probably some of the best I had taken for ages and I liked the fact I didn't have to worry about the camera as it is sturdy and really quite robust. I think I will be more than likely be purchasing one of these camera again in the future and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
A top score of 5 out of 5 stars is in order here!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: A great camera ideal for the beach
