How to Choose a Disposable Camera in the UK – Buying Guide

Without further ado, let’s look into the different features available from different cameras to find what is going to work best for you. We’ll be looking at the film type, ISO speed and number of exposures, as well as a couple of other important factors to consider. 

Find the Right Film Type for Your Photography

Find the Right Film Type for Your Photography

When it comes to shooting film on a disposable camera, you’re no longer living in the digital world. Therefore, you can’t suddenly start shooting in black and white at the flick of a switch! Instead, this decision must be made when choosing a camera.


So, the first thing you’re going to have to do is decide whether you want colour or black and white film. Colour is certainly the most common. However, there are a few black and white options out there to choose from. 

Find the Right Film Type for Your Photography

The issue with black and white film is that it isn’t processed in the same way as colour film. This can cause difficulties, or long time delays when it comes to getting your film developed. Remember, once you have shot in black and white, there is no way of turning it into colour. 


Colour, on the other hand, can be turned to black and white. This process can only happen if you choose to receive your pictures on a CD, or email download, and not as prints. From there, you can open them on a computer, and you’re back in the land of digital. For this reason, we would say that colour is slightly more versatile. 

Understanding the ISO Will Help You Identify the Best Film for Your Needs

Understanding the ISO Will Help You Identify the Best Film for Your Needs

ISO is the measurement that indicates how sensitive to light a particular type of photographic film is. This can range from as low as 25 to as high as 3200 speed, and the higher ISO, the more sensitive to light the film will be. 


When it comes to disposable cameras, you won’t usually have as much choice as if you were shooting on a traditional film camera. Instead, the options tend to range from 200 – 800, with 400 being the most popular. 

Understanding the ISO Will Help You Identify the Best Film for Your Needs

This is the most common because 400 is the lowest high-speed ISO, which will give you a lot more flexibility. This also means you’ve got a better chance of the picture turning out well when using this film. 


If you’re looking for a disposable camera that can be used both day and night, on your holidays, or at a festival, then sticking with a camera that shoots either 400 or 800 ISO would be our recommendation. These speeds generally work the best is all lighting conditions, whereas the 200 will struggle in low light. 

The More Exposures, the More Memories You Can Capture

The More Exposures, the More Memories You Can Capture

The biggest difference between disposable cameras and their digital counterparts, other than the price, is that you have a limited amount of shots before the camera runs out. For that reason, it’s always good to know how many exposures you have. 


Most disposables come with 27 exposures, but they can range from below 20 to over 30. As you can imagine, the more shots you get, the higher the price of the disposable. It’s always worth knowing how many exposures you have left once you start shooting. Luckily, most cameras have an indicator that lets you know either how many shots you have taken, or how many you have left. 

Look for Waterproofing for Pool-Side and Underwater Shots

Look for Waterproofing for Pool-Side and Underwater Shots

Whilst taking a camera into the sea isn’t normally advised, there are some disposables out there that are waterproof. This means you can capture shots of tropical fish in Thailand, or just your kids’ silly faces when they’re being dunked underwater for the first time. 


These are a great option for people heading to rainy or snowy locations too, as sometimes disposables don't have the sturdiest of constructions. This way you’ll have a little extra protection against the elements, should you need it. 


The downside to waterproof disposables is that more often than not, they come with a higher 800 speed ISO, so there will be a little less variety in the term of options. That said, of you are looking to shoot underwater, the higher speed will benefit your photography.

Multipacks Are a Great Way to Save Money

Multipacks Are a Great Way to Save Money

Finally, a great way to save yourself a few pennies when purchasing disposable cameras is by picking them up in multipacks. Disposable cameras can come in packs of 2, 3, 5 or 10, and as you’d imagine, the more you buy, the more money you save


Of course, we don’t think you’ll need 10 disposables for your weekend away rambling in the Peaks, but these large packs can be great for events such as weddings, or ideal for those looking to get a good feel for film photography before buying a more professional camera.
