Disposable Camera


Disposable Cameras

Fuji introduced the first disposable cameras in 1986. They came in handy for weddings, so you didn't have to worry about losing your camera when you'd had a bit too much to drink, and were a great idea if you'd turned up to a big event without your camera.

Bad for the environment you might say? Not at all according to the manufactures. They made a big deal about how recyclable the cameras were (and are).

They are incredibly popular now and if you want to take pictures underwater it is much much cheaper to buy a disposable waterproof camera than a proper one.
