    Walgreens used to have a cheap P&S camera that came with free film for life. So long as you dropped the camera off at a Walgreens to have the film developed, it would be returned full of film. I thought it was pretty cool.
    f/22 and be there.

    CVS had the same in a while...I wonder if they still have it..Come to think of it I haven't seen one in a while. Maybe the photo clerks are told to break them so that they don't have to keep feeding the customers free film IIRC, the were just under $20

    My Maxxum 4 > that and I paid 50 bucks for it.

    Film business here in Florida does great because of all the dinosaurs who live here and shot it their whole lives, on the flipside some of them go digital and think their Nikon F4 is worthless now and pawn it off for peanuts, for me to snatch up a week later

    Basically the same ad as the Vivitar one, but different camera and price.

    The camera that is loaded in the Vivitar ad is definetely not the Vivitar branded one. Well, those people from Blue Moon had seemingly to save on production time...

    That free film concept has a long history in the photographic world. But typically by one way or another it was assured that the film would only be processed by by a certain lab, thus gaining the chance to profit via the processing.

    At least there's one certainty when the US backs a regime it backfires on them and the country moves the wrong way

    It's bad enough that corporate marketing in the U.S. has turned the web content into 100% commercial adverts, now youtube will be the same way. We Americans can't figure out why the rest of the world wants us to go away and leave them alone!! Duh.....EC
