Out tonight with when we came across a horribly overpriced oxymoron!
CVS sells a Disposable Digital Camera! Yes, a One-Time-Use digital camera! DIGITAL CAMERA! I know, I said what the fuck when I saw it too!
The camera is made by a company called Pure Digital Technologies, Inc. located in San Francisco, CA. AT first glance, it just looks like any other small digital camera. It’s got a built in flash and even a 1 inch color LCD on the rear.
Playing around with the camera, it has the ability to take a picture, review and if you chose, delete the picture. One downside is that when you delete a picture, you cant go back and delete earlier pictures. Once you take a picture, your stuck with the previous pic. This sucks for a digital camera!
CVS was asking $20.00 for the camera too, and that does not include processing/developing.
My recommendation is to just get a few disposable cameras, or spend the extra money and get yourself an inexpensive digital camera. You’re better off with a classic film digital camera which costs half as much and I would imagine the quality is higher.
Soon to come, pictures! Featuring of the inner workings of the camera. I’d have em for you now, but I just got a nasty shock trying to open the thing and I think I’ll wait until I have some insulated tools to try again 🙂 Worst case scenario, I can make a nasty stun-gun out of the thing 😉
