    How did these things get to be called disposable? They are not disposable as you do not dispose of them when you are finished with them!

    Probably was degenerated from the "single use" term, lots of things are meant for single use and get disposed of after use.

    I consider my Holga one of my best cameras. I shoot black and white nearly exclusively, and the camera has no discernable light leaks or issues with the back falling off. All I've done to it is put a tape flap over the red window to prevent the light from bleeding in.

    The photo finishers recycle the bodies back to the film companies.

    I was referring to the wedding pics.

    They get looked at once, then thrown out after the divorce.

    When I used to practice divorce law, it was necessary to obtain a photograph of the other spouse in order to help prove service of the court papers. I always thought it particularly sad when my clients would provide me with a wedding photo for that purpose.

    We sure did! Collected them in the empty paper roll bags and they were picked up by the courier who collected any Kodak outsourced work. (Minus those precious AAs!!)

    If you took the time to remove the cardboard they actually have those little recycling numbers on them - guess they got used again and again - but maybe not necessarily as "single (multiple) use cameras". . . . . .

    You're on crack, lol. I don't need a camera to mess everything up for me, I am perfectly capable to do that myself!
