Lomography has some really cool and fun options now available for purchase: disposable cameras. The new Lomography disposable cameras have been tailored and designed more for ease of use than anything else. Additionally, they’re a lot like so many others too in that they strive to get everything in focus, use flash, and also use 35mm film. The disposable cameras are available in a three pack set.
The three cameras are each unique. One is a color ISO 400 35mm film with colored gel options. The other color film is Lomochrome purple, also at ISO 400–but it may not be the best offering due to the fact that Lomochrome Purple really needs a whole lot of light. That is unless they’ve found a way to trick the light meter in the camera. And the third is black and white 400 ISO film, though it’s not clear if that film is Lomography’s Lady Grey film or not.
These disposable cameras are found to be really fun to play with as well as being super easy to use. Plus, considering that Fujifilm is going as far as remodeling their disposable cameras, then there has to be some sort of good market for the cameras still.

Granted, that’s pretty expensive for disposable cameras considering that you can quite literally just walk into a Walgreens and get one for maybe $10. Heck, Ilford disposable cameras aren’t even that expensive. What could be the issue is how special Lomochrome Purple is. However, you’re also not getting the gels that come attached to the camera; but those aren’t a whole lot of money either. Despite all this, I genuinely wish Lomography well on this endeavor.
