Most people make the mistake of assuming that all disposable cameras are alike. Unfortunately, this often leads to an envelope full of low quality photos. You have already taken the first step towards picking the perfect disposable camera. Congratulations! You have just made a smart decision that 99% of your peers did not even considered until it was too late.
Where are you going to take your pictures?
Believe it or not, but the location of a picture can have a great affect on which camera you should choose.
Are your pictures going to be indoors?
Then you will probably be fine with a Film Speed of around 400. Because you are indoors, the light levels will be lower. Remember, the lower the film speed, the brighter the photos. A flash is optional in the typical lightened room, but definitely recommended.
Are your pictures going to be outdoors?
Use the same logic as an indoor camera. The lighter the conditions, the higher you will want the film speed. If you are going to take pictures outdoors, you will most likely have lots of sunlight, so pay a little extra. Otherwise, you will have a series of sunbeam shots…not very memorable. I would suggest a film speed of about 800. That should be perfect for those sunny hikes and picnics.
Are you feeling a bit artistic? If you do not mind the wait, you could order specialty disposable cameras from an online retailer. Whether black and white, or underwater you can usually find something to suit your needs.
