How about a little challenge for a future project.
I thought it might be interesting for everyone to try something different, my idea is for people to buy a throw away camera and see what they get from it, kind of bring everyone down to the same basic point and shoot level and try and take one good picture with it, no bells and whistles, just you and a camera.
I think it could be a good way to actually think more about the photograph than the camera.

Sounds like a good idea to me, but a little difficult to judge as it will rely on honesty, and no post manipulation.... but I would be up for it..... oh that sounds really bad doesnt it... like everyone is dishonest lol....
Yes, I'd be up for that How could you prove it though?...call me cynical but someone's bound to cheat
Or... we could always send the original prints to Ephotozine??
you'd have to send the disposable camera to ePHOTOzine and let Pete develop them all.
Count me in, although maybe not make it too competitive as that will encourage cheating. Regardless of any competition I'd be interested to see the different results.
Actually - some of my most fav pics of myself have been taken on cheap little snappy cameras!!! I think it's cos they don't pick up the detail haha :o))
The start and finish point is ePz towers.
Each member of the editorial team starts off with a simple throw away camera, hopefully donated by a willing sponsor, on which they make one image before sending the camera on to the next participant. Oh yes I forgot to mention that there has to be teams drawn up, probably up to 36 in each?
Each team member has only one chance to make an image before it is sent on to the next team member and each team member has only one day to make that image. Forward planning is in great evidence here!
Once the last team member takes their shot the camera is sent back to ePz and the results posted.
What do ya think?
Too complicated - just get a disposable camera and posts the results.
Does it count if I take one on a D1x and then chuck it away?

only if you throw it at me... I'd like another one
I think Honesty should be down to the individual, there is no competition intended here, It would just be interesting to see the different results from different photographers.
If there are enough takers maybe Pete could suggest a weekend for it to happen.
How about it.
Sounds like a good idea to me. Don't have a disposable but have an ancient plastic point and shoot pocket film camera with no zoom and no manual settings will that do?
they only cost about 3 quid from Tesco.
In fact, I think they're doing a two for one on the blue stripey ones.
And yeah, I might well be up for it.
Yup, I'm in. I have a couple of old Kodak Brownies. Very low tech.... just a shutter and a winding knob! Can I use them?
