"Cheese, Sausages.....SMILE"

When our Camera broke just before our holiday we were peeved to say the least but considering it was 6 and a half years old we couldn't really complain!

Off we went to Boots and discovered the Kodak T30 camera! A basic APS camera for £29.99, it would take our photo's and that is all that mattered to us!

The camera is APS which means there is no difficult loading, you just slip the film in, close it and press the button and it loads itself! Yes really that simple.

It is silver! It is 4inches wide and 2 and a hald inches tall! It is a handy little size for fitting in your pocket or a bag. It also comes with it's own little black carrier case which can be fitted on to a belt or bum bag strap if you want to carry it this way on holiday!

It has APS fixed focus so it is just basic and there is no chance to zoom in and take a closer picture. For us that doesn't matter as we do have the digital camera but this one is for taking photo's when out and about and if she wants, our daughter can use it too, without damaging it or upsetting the focus.

There is a manual shutter whichs when closed allows your film to be protected into not taking any more pictures and wasting your film. The flash will only work when the shutter has been opened and the green light comes on. Also when the shutter is opened on the top is a small oval shape and it shows numbers which tells you how many pictures you have left to take!.

There is also 3 sizes of photo's which you can take. The usual 6x4 photo or the slightly larger 7x4 or a panoramic. You need to ensure that you have it on the correct setting before taking the pictures too! This is on the left hand side of teh camera and is a little push along tab which then alters the peephole to see what you will be taking!

You require 2 AAA batteries for the camera to work. If the batteries don't work then the camera won't work. It's as simple as that! The batteries go in easily underneath the camera and it easily shows you what to do inside.

There is a grey lever type button on the right handside of the camera. You slide this along and it opens the film compartment which is also on the underside! It is clearly marked as well!

We have found this a simple, easy camera which is easy to work and for £30 what else could you ask for! The only place we have found this is in Boots and it comes with a 2 year guarantee.

The camera doesn't come with a lot of fancy functions and if you aren't that great with things this would be the ideal camera for you. If you are looking for a basic camera then try this one out. You basically get what you pay for with this but it met our needs of needing an APS basic camera and is very easy and simple to use. That simple that I didn't even read the instructions. It is also fairly light!

We have had our photo's developed and they were of a fantastic quality like our digital ones and

This would be ideal for a child's first camera or for a relative whom may have trouble fixing in the old 35mm film into their old camera. Or for a family who aren't that technology minded!

If you want something which has zoom in focus etc this isn't the camera for you

    I have an APS camera too, it makes life so much easier. I could never load the films in the other ones. I'd end up pulling half of it out to get it fitted in.

    sounds good for beginners or young children!
