The Darkroom Develops Disposable Cameras
More about the Kodak Fun Saver 35mm Single-Use Camera with Flash
Charge manual flash before every picture, Available in 27 exposures, Lightweight and compact, Loaded with Kodak 800 speed
The Kodak FunSaver is like all single-use cameras with a simple plastic lens, manual film advance, and 27 exposures. The Kodak FunSaver comes with a built-in flash and loaded with Kodak film. Color and contrast are pretty good, especially considering it’s a single-use camera with a small, plastic lens.
As with all cameras, to take a photo by advancing the film with the thumbwheel until it won’t turn anymore, look through the viewfinder and click the shutter button at the top. Use the flash on dark days, deep shadows, or indoors. Activate the Last by pushing the button on the front (There’s only one button and it has a bolt-on it). Hold the button until the red dot on the top turns red, indicating the flash is ready. The flash is good from about 4′ to 11.5′ (1.2m to 3.5m)
The Kodak FunSaver is the best disposable camera we tested and is popular at weddings. We’ve commonly seen them placed on tables where guests are encouraged to pick them up and start shooting. The cameras are return and the host will send them in for developing. Of course, these aren’t as popular with everyone having a camera on their phone, but we are seeing a resurgence in the disposable camera popularity.
Camera comes with a single AA battery installed and the charge will last much longer than shooting the 27 pictures with flash. Considering that and the plastic body, the camera isn’t eco-friendly. The DarkRoom will send them to a recycling facility to recover much of the materials
