We have decided to take along a few disposable cameras on our trip. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding brands?

Thanks! http://www.intercot.com/boards/smile.gif

Kodak Advantix disposables. You can switch picture sizes like the point-and-shoot variety.

I dropped my camera on Main Street in December http://www.intercot.com/boards/eek.gif , so when we went in June I took three Kodak Max HQ Brand cameras with flash. They take excellent quality pics. I have even considered not replacing my camera and just using these!

I don't think it matters what brand you use, they are all basically the same. We have used to cheapest ones that have a flash and they have always come out very good. I have found them at Walmart for about 4.50 ea.

I would stick to ones using 800 ISO film speed and I personaly like the Kodak and Fuji ones.
I manage a photolab here in Canada and the cheaper the disposable camera the worst the pictures get. It's not something wrong with the cameras but it's usually the film. I would say that the Kodak and fuji ones on the market are not recycled with film of lesser quality. I wouldn't take any chances with my precious WDW pics...If you decide to get cheap ones, I would suggest using one before you go to see if you like the quality.


I can't tell you how many people don't. Also the fireworks don't usually show up very well.

Have a picture perfect day!

If you have a discount wholesale club near you (Sam's Club, Costco, BJ's, etc.) check out their deals on disposable cameras and film. We bought a bunch of them for our wedding last year and had a few left over and brought them on our June trip. They worked great and were well under $5 each. They were Kodak brand. Staples recently had some disposable cameras on sale for $3.95 each, but I passed on them since I had so much film at home already.

We also got a great deal on film for our Advantix camera at BJ's - 6 rolls for $14.99 and a $6 rebate coupon was attached. They don't run those prices all of the time so I pick up the film when I see it on sale.

I suggest either the Kidak Advantix Switchable Disposable or a Kodak GOLD Max. Those tend to work the best out of all of the dosposables I've tried (and I've tried several hundred)
