Camera Parts Inventory

Casing

The outer casing of the camera surrounds the camera, and protects the parts inside of the camera from being damaged and holds all other parts in place. This outer case also prevents light from coming in contacts with the film before the shutter opens. when a picture is being taken the disposable camera is generally made out of plastic to keep costs down and to make the camera durable.
