Wal-Mart rolls out Disposable Digital Camera


It’s unlike any onetime-use camera on the market – a camera developed especially for customers who are interested in trying online photo services but who may not be ready to invest in a digital camera.

Walmart.com and Wal-Mart stores nationwide are offering a onetime-use camera that includes Wal-Mart’s Pictures Online service as part of the price. It’s an easy and affordable way to share summer photos without investing in a digital camera ($6.84 per camera, including the online service, a $2.74 value).

Here’s how it works: The disposable 35 mm camera is “tagged” so when the camera is dropped off at Wal-Mart, the pictures are automatically uploaded to the Walmart.com Photo Center. That means customers will be able to take pictures with the Walmart.com One-Time-Use Flash Camera, return it to their local Wal-Mart for high-quality developing and have their pictures securely posted online at the Walmart.com Photo Center for sharing and printing. The new camera is now available at www.walmart.com and at Wal-Mart stores nationwide.
