Why You Should Travel with a Disposable Camera

Why You Should Travel with a Disposable Camera

Try travelling the path less taken by bringing a single-use disposable camera on your next trip. For beginners, bring your usual gadgets just in case you want to ensure you’ve captured the shot. But hey, the whole point is to embrace the unknown and capture the true moment! 

Here are my top three reasons to travel with disposable cameras:


1. It's Vintage

Developed pictures are beautifully vintage and do not require photoshopping. The picture above was taken with the Fujifilm Smile ‘n Snap Single Use Camera without flash in bright sunlight.


2. It's Social

Travel with a disposable camera

You’ll need to ask a stranger for help if you want to be in the picture, which adds to the whole point of travelling because meeting new people is fun!


3. Delayed Gratification

Disposable camera benefits

Not being able to see the picture right away makes it very rewarding - everything is so convenient nowadays so delaying gratification makes it more special



Best Disposable Cameras

There are lots of different disposable cameras on the market and so choosing the right one can be difficult. Here are my top recommendations:


1. Fujifilm Quicksnap Waterproof Camera

For water lovers - try the Fujifilm Quicksnap Waterproof Camera. You won't be dissapointed by this camera although the only minor problem with this camera is there is no flash.

Here is a picture taken with the Fujifilm Quicksnap Waterproof Camera in bright sunlight:

2. Fujifilm Smile ‘n Snap Single Use Camera

If you are looking for a cheap and reliable disposable camera I again recommend the Smile ‘n Snap Single Use Camera from Fujifilm .

Top tip - always turn on your flash unless the sun is shining really bright. This is a picture on the Fujifilm Smile ‘n Snap Single Use Camera, I should have turned the flash on even though it was sunny outside but not bright enough as I was in the shade (I was trying to capture the cute flags running across and down the street).

So if you are about to depart your next adventure, by all means take your phone or a digital camera, but consider a disposable too - they are more fun than you might think.
