    I found this camera in a drawer, no idea what's on it so this should be fun!

    Nothing on the camera to indicate if it's color or b&w. Just says 35mm Any idea? Also, is there a 35mm cartridge in there or do I need to crack open the camera in the dark?

    It say's develop by 2007-04 so it's an older model.

    I don't think I have ever heard of a disposable camera with B&W film in it, have you ever seen one?

    Freestyle has a BW disposable Rollie. I have never used one.

    So you think C-41 process? The color flash "explosion" makes me think color though.

    Survey says...

    Color... ISO800

    I made the command decision to tear it down hoping there was an actual film cartridge in there. Okay, I peeked at some internet pictures to confirm but hey, it was still a leap of faith. Could be some irreplaceable cat pictures :-O

    Harman Technologies, who owns the B&W Ilford most of us know and love, makes a disposable camera with B&W film.

    Be very careful opening that camera, as the flash discharge could knock you into yesterday if you touch the wrong thing. I never fool w/ these for that reason.

    The camera has the film fully unwound inside, and winds it into the cartridge as you take pictures. When the camera is spent you can send the entire thing to the lab, or take off the paper wrapping and figure out how to open it. It's not too difficult, and you don't need to smash it. You may need a screwdriver to pry open a hatch.

    They actually make 2 versions: one with HP5+ and one with XP2 Super.:smile:

    Your lovely Freestyle might have lot of things, but I'm sure they wouldn't have a Rolls-Royce. However, they do have some Rollei products.:wink:

    Maco (Rollei) and IlfordPhoto both market two b&w films in single-use cameras.

    Been there, done that. Almost said a few choice words in front of my Grandmother, but was able to hold my tongue.
