Updated on July 30, 2009

A waterproof single use camera offers a fun and cheap alternative to risking an often-expensive digital camera in an attempt to take some more unusual photographs.

These one-time cameras need to offer a robust and sturdy build, with a design that's easy to grip, and even be able to take pictures with a pair scuba or winter gloves on. Moreover, must be compact enough to fit with a small holdall, beach bag, or pocket.
