Disposable Entry-Level Camera
The Snap LF-35M camera is made of reusable materials.
LensFayre, an online film camera retailer, has released the Snap LF-35M that has all of the features of popular disposable cameras but is environmentally friendly and composed of recyclable materials.
The entry-level camera is an affordable alternative to disposable cameras, and its design focuses on sustainability.
The camera is even designed to imitate the look and feel of a disposable unit and is packaged with a set of 10 retro-style stickers, allowing users to customize it. In terms of specifications, Snap LF-35M has a 28mm f/8, single-lens lens, focus-free operation, a fixed shutter speed of 1/120 second, and an old manual wind system.
Snap LF-35M includes an in-built flash with a range of one to three meters and is powered by a single AA battery.
It produces images with all of the characteristics of a popular disposable, but without the negatives associated with waste.
Snap LF-35M is completely reusable and recyclable. Its body is made of ABS plastic (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), a thermoplastic that can be easily melted and reshaped into a solid.
Snap LF-35M’s packaging is recyclable or biodegradable, including the stickers, which are composed of strong vinyl substances that are 100 percent compostable.
LensFayre also supports the Tree-Nation Reforestation Initiative, a non-profit organization responsible for overseeing 100 reforestation and conservation projects worldwide. LensFayre will plant a tree for every item sold, and part of the proceeds will be donated to NGOs assisting in reforestation.
The Snap OF-35M is priced at about $50 and comes with a wrist strap and two custom stickers.
