Kodak FUN Flash 400 are disposable cameras that are small and easy to carry around. If you are going on a short break these are excellent. You do not have to worry about losing the camera as they are a lot less expensive compared to digital cameras.

Digital cameras can be very expensive and if you lose them then you lose a lot of money. As well as the dangers of losing digital cameras they are also prey to theft. If you take an expensive digital camera on holiday where you may have to share a room, then it might be stolen. It is easy to lose things or forget things when you go on holiday. Some people do not see the need for buying traditional cameras any more, but I think there will always be a good reason to buy throw away cameras.

If you are at a party then someone might see your posh digital camera and steal it. Even if you think that you know someone you need to be aware of the risks of theft. By taking a disposable camera with you to a party or on holiday, then you will not risk something so expensive getting stolen or damaged.

Kodak FUN Flash 400 produce a wonderful, crisp and clear photo. They also have a flash installed so if you need to take pictures in the dark then you can do. When we went on holiday recently we set off Chinese Lanterns on the last day and I used this camera to take a photo of them. I was happy with the result considering that it was night time when we set them off. The photos came out well.

Nearly all camera shops and chemist's will develop the film for you. Boots offer a 1 hour development service so you do not have to wait long for your photos. Boots do charge more money for developing film quicker. However, sometimes you cannot wait to see your photos and want them as soon as possible. The other thing is that if you are away on holiday and want your films developed quickly then you can get them there and then.

Although this is not a camera you would use all the time, for short breaks, parties and other occasions it is excellent. I would recommend buying this camera because it has always been reliable and produced clear photos.

I am not a lover of digital cameras because I always end up losing them or not using them. I am not very good with technology which is why I don't put many photos on my Ciao reviews. I just haven't got the hang of them and find using a traditional camera much easier. I like to have a traditional camera that I take with for special occasions. However, when I am on holiday I like to take the Kodak FUN Flash 400. The photos produced are colourful and sharp.

Kodak FUN Flash 400 are very convenient and handy because they will fit easily into your handbag or pocket. They are handy because they offer you an easy way to take indoor and outdoor photos that bring back the memories that you have cherished.

Kodak FUN Flash 400 are low in cost, accessible for those that value spontaneity and want to capture the special moment in an instant. If you do not like technology and consider yourself a technophobe then these are excellent. If you cannot be bothered with the technical elements of photography and need a camera to perform well, without being frustrating or difficult to use, then you will love the Kodak FUN Flash 400. You do not have to use complicated buttons or wires, read through long instructions, you just point the camera and click.

I have been using the Kodak FUN Flash 400 for many years and over the years I've noticed that the picture quality has improved a lot. Therefore, it is often not necessary to buy expensive cameras that make you worry about damaging them. The colour of the Kodak FUN Flash 400 is black and yellow. The Kodak FUN Flash 400 has a 35mm preloaded film and a built in flash with 39 exposures. The camera usually comes with twenty seven exposures, but it's possible to get twelve extra exposures totally free of charge. The Kodak FUN Flash 400 is excellent for times when you do not want to take your digital camera or phone.
