Portable and Practical: Designed to slip into your pocket or bag, it's your constant companion, ready to capture the world's wonders at a moment's notice. For better and worse, the FunSaver is completely emblematic of the philosophy of expendability that characterized mass-market design in the 1980s, ‘90s and early 2000s. I see moderate pincushion distortion and color fringing along the sides between high contrast areas. Best of all, the camera never overstays its welcome – it’s gone as soon as it gets sent in for processing.

If you want to use the flash, just push the button on the front of the camera until the red dot on the top turns red, which means the flash is ready. Film type and exposures: I think Kodak uses 24 exposure 800 ‘max’ type, which is no longer available as a stand alone film, however, when loading in a darkroom as they do when making the camera yields 27 images. But because we now scan film, we get the maximum benefit from the images and are not reliant on trusting that the 1 hour processor cares to get it right. So to reload it you have to do it in the dark or a dark bag, by rolling the film onto the ‘take-up spool’. The speedy Kodak 800 ISO film found in the FunSaver possesses a wide exposure latitude, giving the FunSaver a versatility that other disposable cameras simply don’t have.We’ve commonly seen them placed on tables where guests are encouraged to pick them up and start shooting.

For quite a few shots I tried to shade the lens from the sun using my hand, but as you see, the lens captured what the viewfinder did not. The recycling rate for these cameras is now more than 70 percent in the United States and about 60 percent worldwide. For advanced photographers looking to simplify or get away from their complicated pro- and semi-pro cameras, I’d happily recommend the FunSaver over other often-recommended “simplify your life” cameras like the Holga or Vivitar’s Ultra Wide and Slim. Kodak Gold 800 film brings picture quality to a new level by combining the color quality, fine detail, and picture clarity of lower-speed films with the benefits of higher speed films. The small camera slipped VERY easily in a pocket, and there was something about the 30mm lens that just seemed to be perfect.This may seem like an awful lot of praise for a consumer disposable, and let’s be frank, for photo geeks obsessed with quality and control, serious photographers who live and die by their Leica M or Nikon F6, the Funsaver simply won’t satisfy. Versatile for All Ages: Whether you're introducing photography to young adventurers or rediscovering the joy of film yourself, the FunSaver is accessible and delightful for all generations.

The Kodak FunSaver 35mm Single Use Camera - 27 Exposures is more than just a camera; it's a gateway to preserving moments that define life. Not that I spend much time arguing about terminology, but the word “disposable” has so many bad connotations these days and also is inaccurate when referring to single-use cameras, since they are recycled. You also need to reset the film counter to the number of exposures on the film, you won’t be able to do this after you have loaded the film as it will be inside the closed body. If you have any further questions or require additional information, please feel free to contact us.

To get to it I had to take off the front cover, remove the battery and pull up the circuit board to get a glimpse of it.

Note on this review: it reads very similar to the HD power flash because I used that review for much of the text as the cameras are nearly the same.Loaded with the right film, such as a chromogenic black and white emulsion, this camera seems like a great landscape or street camera with a very wide depth of field. The film was taken to a lab for developing, and scanned through a friend’s scanning service in which he uses a Noritsu (I forget the exact model).
