Advantages: Mega easy to work; Brill photos at the end of it
Disadvantages: No flash; Have to get the camera developed instead of just uploading your photos to the computer
I've got a brill Sony Cybershot camera which I love but on the spur of the moment me and my mate decided to go down to the Hagley Road to see if we could see the pope in his popemobile! lol Well we thought the main thing at Cofton Park was happening 2 mins away and the roads all round our houses were closed so we might as well see what all the fuss was about. I didn't even THINK about taking my camera until we got close and saw that everyone else had got them and then it was too late! lol
We popped into the shop on the way to the Hagley Road for some munchies and when I saw he was selling these basic Kodak cameras I bought one because I thought it would be nice to get some snaps.
It ended up that we didn't see the pope because we got there waaaaaaay too late and there was a tonne of people who had been standing there waiting for HOURS. I saw the top of the popemobile and held the camera up into the air, when the photos come back there's a bit of a shadow in the window that might be the pope.... or one of the other men in the car.... or even just a reflection! lol
Anyway, the camera is fine. It's a dead basic disposible camera that takes half decent photos. Kodak say that this camera is made for taking photos in the daytime but that's only because there's no flash on it! I loved how basic it was to use because there's no messing about with it at all. The camera is always on so when you're ready to take a photo you just wind the winder round and press the button.
The button to take the photo is good, you don't have to force it down like when you use Boots disposible cameras and other cheaper cameras. It feels just like pressing the button on an old film camera, it's not as soft feeling as using a digital camera obviously but I think it has still got a nice feel. One good thing is that with this camera as soon as you press the button you take the photo, not like the annoying delay on my digital camera that means I sometimes miss perfect shots.
I got the photos developed today because I'd took some of me and my mate that I wanted to see. The photos have come out brill, I got them developed as normal sized photos and they are dead sharp and clear. The only thing is that the colour is a bit washed out compared to photos I print out from my digital camera.
Recommended for if you leave your camera at home!
