The trend among selfie-loving millennials now are images with sepia tones and vintage-looking filters. Instagram accounts here and there show pictures of flowers, people, and food that look like they were taken many years ago.
Since they were invented in 1949, disposable cameras came in handy for travelers who wanted to take pictures of their trip but didn’t want to have to lug around an expensive or bulky camera. The earliest versions of these single-use cameras were made up of cardboard that shot eight exposures.
A disposable camera is loaded with a roll of film. Once the film has been used up, it can be removed from the camera and brought to the nearest photo processing center for developing. These days, disposable cameras, especially with their cheap lenses, give photos a charming, less-than-perfect quality to them–the opposite effect of images shot through a cell phone camera.
Want to get your hands on a single-use camera? STAIL.PH tracked down these stores on Instagram.
Shop Casuale sells different colors and sizes of disposable cameras. Get one for as low as Php600.
