Fujifilm Quick Snap Disposable Camera

Digital cameras are pushing film to the dustheap, but as long ago as 1949, cameras designed for the trash can had already been developed, when Photo-Pac marketed a $1.29 cardboard disposable that took 8 exposures. It was Fujifilm's Quick Snap line of disposable cameras that gave the industry legs in 1986. Disposable 35-mm cameras still do a brisk business, even in the digital era. Don't believe it? Go to a wedding reception and look next to the centerpiece when you sit down.
