Digital Camera World Verdict

I like the styling of the Harman EZ35 Reusable 35mm Film Camera, with its smart black finish with green accents. It’s simple to use and takes manual film advance out of the equation with a motorized auto-winder.

Most single-use film cameras look like throwaway items, with good reason, because that’s exactly what they are. Unfortunately, the same goes for most plastic reloadable cameras, but this one looks and feels sturdier than most and has relatively attractive styling. I like that it comes complete with a roll of 36-exposure Ilford HP5 Plus ISO 400 black & white film and an AA battery for powering not only the usual built-in flash, but also a more unusual motorized film winder. Less thumb-twiddling for me! In short, everything’s included for me to venture back into the world of point-and-shoot analog photography.

The Kodak Black & White Tri-X 400 Single Use Camera can’t be reloaded but is cheaper to buy and comes pre-loaded with ‘Kodak Professional’ Tri-X black & white film.
