I first purchased a WOW camera quite a while ago, and have had quite a few since.

I'm forever worrying about losing cameras and film and developing doesn't come cheap, so a WOW camera seemed like the perfect solution. I first used a WOW camera on a trip to Paris, and although most of the pictures came out as well as could be expected for a disposable camera, night time shots were terrible and nothing could be made out on them at all.

Recently, I took some WOW cameras on an archaeological excavation. They were kept in my bag on site every day and survived unscathed even though my bag got soaked through a few times and despite all the sand that got into my bag. However, I was very dissappointed with the quality of the photos this time around. Even the shots taken in the light were fuzzy and night time shots, once again, were undefined.

The flash button on the cameras seems to vary quite frequently. I've never had a complaint with the format of it before, but this time it was placed awkwardly at the front of the camera and had to be held down continuously as the photo was taken.

However, these cameras are small, light and durable. They are simple to operate and relatively cheap which would make them ideal for children to use or take with them on holiday. They are handy to take abroad or to take in place of expensive convensional cameras if you are worried about damaging them, and seem to consistantly produce relatively good quality close up pictures in well lit locations, even if distance shots or shots taken in darker settings (even if the flash is used) don't always turn out very well.

They also look quite cheap and although you are warned not to remove the cardboard packaging surrounding the camera, it would be easy for it to rip.

I would recommend them as good value for money for holiday snaps etc. but it would be best spending the extra money on a conventional camera and film for more important photos.

WOW cameras can be bought from Klick and Max Spielman for £5.99.
