Product Dissection: Single-Use Cameras

Description

The single-use or disposable camera is a simple box camera sold with a roll of film installed, meant to be used once. Most use focus free lenses. Some are equipped with an integrated flash unit, and there are even waterproof versions for underwater photography. Internally, the cameras use a 135 film or an APS cartridge [Source: Wikipedia.com].

Purpose: To explore how an single-use camera works and to see the differences between cameras from different manufacturers.

Background and reference materials: assembly drawing and parts list

Manufacturing processes introduced: plastic injection molding

Activities: dissection, sketching, detective work, understanding assembly prints

What should you get out of this? An appreciation for design, an understanding of manufacturing and assembly processes, a holistic view of what goes into a product

Acknowledgement: Special thanks to Kodak for the donation of these cameras.
