    Default Cheap disposable cameras

    Hi we're a group of students organising an event that requires approximately 15 disposable cameras. We are seeking low-budget disposable cameras that are suitable for use for the intellectually disabled.

    We will appreciate any donations of such cameras or leads to places that sell these disposable cameras at low cost.

    Thanks!

    i think Muji 1 is slightly more expensive than the ones at Carrefour.

    TS, let me know your project, since not so expensive stuff... perhaps can just buy a few packs to donate for a good cause. pm me if needed.

    That was me. Hehehe... I scouted Muji for an $8 well designed disposable camera. This was cheap considering my impression of disposable cameras in camera shops was about $16. However, I was shocked when my visit to Carrefour showed their cameras of similar type(with flash) to be $4.

    Then again, Muji v Carrefour, design and branding does make a difference.

    well, for charity work, its the final delivery and not the posing with a muji product...

    but i do see alot of kodaks from sponsors putting such cameras in kid's goody bag for them to shoot around...

    anyway its all about budget and sponsor.

    I agree. Buying the camera should be around $10. But developing already costs around $8 for process and scanning to CD.

    If you want to print, even more costs involved.
