Disposable Camera By Zachary Simonian

CASE

The outer casing of the camera surrounds the camera to protect the parts inside of the camera from being damaged. Also, it holds all of the other parts in place. It also prevents light from coming in contact with film before shutter.

Shutter

Doesn't allow light into it. It does this so that the film will not be exposed to light until user wants to take a picture. Opens and closes between the lens and film when picture is taken.

Lens

Film

The light reflected off the surface of the subject strikes the emulsion. This preserves the image of what the camera has seen or the film. Film is a light sensitive emulsion on a plastic base.

A curved piece of glass or plastic. Its job is to redirect the beams of light bouncing off the object and come together and form the image.

Flash Circuit

The flash circuit has three different parts. Each do a unique job in order to create the flash. The first part is the battery. This provides a source of energy. Also, the gas discharge tube produces the flash.

Gas Discharge Tube

A tube filled with xenon gas, the kind of gas in a neon light or florescent lamp. Has electrons on each end, and a metal trigger plate in the tube. The trigger plate is hidden by a reflective material which directs the flash forward.
