Kodak Supports The Disposable Memory Project - Kodak is giving their support to a community camera project.
Kodak is providing 50 of its ultra compact single use cameras to help the Disposable Memory Project – a community project that's leaving disposable cameras around the world for people to pick up, take photos and pass them on.
Each camera has a unique web address, and by leaving some simple information such as where the camera has been found and where the images have been taken, the site builds up a location-based story of the cameras’ journey. On completion, the camera is returned to the project which develops the camera and uploads all the images to the web.
Matthew Knight, founder of the Disposable Memory Project said: "The project has been growing since it was launched in 2008 and we’re proud to have recently released our 350th camera. We still get the same feeling today when a completed camera drops through the door as we did at the beginning. We’re excited that Kodak is helping our project to grow through providing the community with more cameras, and with 37 exposures in each Kodak ultra compact film, the camera will be able to tell an even longer and richer story!"
Lars Fiedler, Kodak said: "Thousands of people each year use single use cameras because they are lightweight, fun and easy to use and allow you to capture snapshots of moments you do not want to miss! The Disposable Memory Project is a fun community scheme that allows consumers to create a fantastic story through pictures. We’re delighted to be able to support the community with this project."
