If you’ve already tried several disposable cameras, we recommend investing in a basic reusable point-and-shoot like the Kodak M35, which is a great option for beginners or folks who just don’t want to bother with more complicated devices. It’s a little pricier than most disposable cams, but it’ll save you money down the line since you won’t have to constantly buy new cameras. It has a fixed focus lens—so you won’t have to set the focus yourself—as well as a built-in flash that you can switch on or off. Once you’ve finished your 35mm roll, just switch out the film and you can already start taking more pictures even while waiting for your last roll to be developed.
