I was extremely disappointed in the quality of photos that the disposible
cameras provided.  They were not able to handle the variations of light you
often see on the trail.  I don't think they even had a lens, if they did it
had to be recycled plastic, the focus was horrible.  A pin camera would have
produced better results.

Anyone that wishes good quality photos should spend a couple hundred dollars
on a decent point and shoot with zoom and macro capabilities.

I would have been better off with just a notepad for visual image, then these
produced.  Course, I didn't carry that either!  Many thanks to all I know
online with scanned photos. : )
