great pictures both in and out of the water,
This review is from: Fujifilm 7025227 Quick Snap Waterproof 35mm Single Use Camera (Blue/Green/White) (OLD MODEL) (Camera)
This is a great little camera for taking pictures both in and out of the water. Not surprisingly, it delivers best underwater on a sunny day, but even on overcast days, it produces crisp pictures with great detail.
On land, it is much less particular about lighting, and produces pictures with beautiful colour in light or shadow, or both.
Since it takes such nice pictures out of the water, a first time user might want to practice with it on land. The lever action feels a lot different from the push-button action of regular throw-away cameras, and since you don't hear the click of the shutter underwater, you might be uncertain whether anything happened. A couple of test shots (without the urgency of a sea turtle swimming by or a beautiful school of fish) should increase the photographer's confidence in the camera when underwater.
The big wheel that advances the film works very well; it's easy to find by touch, so getting another snap of something before it swims away isn't difficult.
There's also a little strap to keep it on your wrist, although it's a good idea to keep a firm hold on the camera anyway while swimming.
The simple operation made it a hit with the kids; they were able to make their own special souvenirs of the underwater world.

How do you take the film out of the camera?

This is an old post, so you may know by now. But you take the whole camera to be developed and they take it out when they process the film. It's just a one-time use camera.

I think your review is one of the best on any product. It was the extra hints that are the most helpful. Who would know right off that practicing out of water would help them underwater. Although I do not plan to go underwater I just thought I'd let you know how useful your short review was.
