I had never really considered using a single use camera untill i went to london with my partner and we brought one to take some shots of us together although i wasnt really expecting the photos to turn out very well! so we were really supprised when the pictures were of a pretty good quality!
A few weeks ago we spent a week in spain and brought another single use camera as we had forgotton to take our digital one. The camera was excellent as we were able to carry it loose in a bag so that it was easy to take photos but we didnt have to worry about it gettin stolen or damaged as it was no where near as expensive as a multi use camera.
The camera itself costs £8.49, for 15 exposures and this does not include a flash or the development of the photos. I didnt mind the price as the photos were such good quality and the benefits of having a single use camera are useful, the only disadvantage is the lack of flash, this was not a problem at all in the day as all photos were taken outside but it would have been nice to take a few in the evenings or in the hotel, however we were aware that there was no flash when we brought it so this wasnt really a problem!
The pictures were easy to take as it was just a case of winding on and pressing the button! so even my five year old brother was able to take photos which was nice!
We took the camera out on a catermaran boat with us to take photos which we would never have been able to do with our digital or other cameras for fear of them getting damaged or falling overboard! but with the single use camera it gave us the enjoyment of being able to take photos but eliminated the worry and stress of having to constantly be checking the camera is safe.
When we got home we got the photos developed and were amazed at the quality of the pictures, there are some action shots of my brother jumping into a swimming pool that look as though they have been taken with a very expensive and good camera. We were pleased with all the photos and would now mostly use single use cameras instead of others.
