Does anyone on my friend list know where I can buy / order disposable zoom cameras?
People were talking about them a while ago. I've googled but come up blank.
Any leads would be very helpful and very appreciated. Thanks in advance. :o)

I ordered a couple from http://www.cngdisposablecamera.com/Long_Range_Disposable_Camera.html.

I haven't used them yet, so I can't comment on how good they are.

Man! These cameras are turning out to be as rare as hens' teeth!!! Think I'll get into the events at CFTC with a digital camera? (I don't want to go all that way to be barred because I want to bring a camera.)

well last year you could only bring a disposable in unless you hid it and snuck it in. No "real" cameras were allowed, and I don't think they're allowing this year either, although I know folks who are being creative with how they're hiding them.

A while back I had emailed Ferrania, the company that makes those cameras, asking where I could get those cameras from. A month and a half and a medical leave later, the girl replied back with this info:

We currently sell Telephoto cameras under the following Brands.

Best Yet (Midwest area)
Finast (East Coast)
Hyvee (Dakota's, Minn area)
Stop & Shop (East Coast)
Western Family (WA, OR, UT area)
Super G ( East Coast)
Topcrest (Several smaller stores - which I don't know)

If these are not possible -- you could purchase a case of 10 cameras - by
calling our order entry number
1-800-654-5007 -- we take Visa, Mastercard and American Express.


The next day she sent me another email:

I was doing some research and found 2 websites that carry our Telephoto
cameras.
in case that was easier for you.

http://www.cngdisposablecamera.com/Long_Range_Disposable_Camera.html
http://www.pakor.com/web-pakor.com/servlet/PakorCatalog

Thanks again for contacting Ferrania.

Thank you so much for these links!!!
::dances::
The first is the one that is sold out.
I ordered some from Pakor.
::crosses fingers that they have some in stock::
Thank you again!!!
Did you manage to get yourself some of them? That case of 10 sounds like a good idea.

I ordered mine from Freestyle Photogrpahic Supplies. Had I known about Pakor, I would've ordered it there because it's cheaper, and I would've gotten more than four. Ptth. Ah well. Unless we all chip in for a case of 10. lol Ordering in bulk could be a good thing. :)

If the chick hadn't gone on medical leave for a month and a half, I would have gotten the info out earlier. The case of 10 is cool but I couldn't afford that on my own. At least we have the info now and can better plan for next year. LOL

I'm glad you were able to find any cameras at all. They're REALLY hard to find.
Now I've got my fingers crossed that I get mine on time before I head to Miami.

Yeah, I got 3 of them. I was nervous about getting them because I've never used them before but people who have seemed to be satisfied with them. I'm going to try and get my digital in also. I've got one of those thin ones that will fit into my wallet. Hopefully, they won't get all anal about it when it comes to checking our bags. I don't remember them looking in our wallets so it should be all good.

Hi,

I'm one of your roomies for the CFTC, I'm Michelle well I ordered my cameras thru http://www.cngdisposablecamera.com/Long_Range_Disposable_Camera.html but they're sold out, there's a plenty of sites for those cameras, but not at that price. Last year I could sneaked my camera for the skills game, http://img1.photobucket.com/albums/1003/HoneyPOPGirl/jcchasez/mypics/jcskills2003.jpg but I just only took like 3 pics with my camera, b/c I ended up sitting in 1st row with VIP. For the bball game last year I don't know why in last moment we were allowed to use our regular cameras, anyway I sneaked mine just in case, but I saw a lot of ppl taking pics with digital and regular cameras so I used mine, and I had the lady from the staff and she doesn't say a word. http://img1.photobucket.com/albums/1003/HoneyPOPGirl/jcchasez/mypics/jc_bball03.jpg I'll taking my zoom & digital camera to the bball game, and for the skills I'll use the zoom disposable and sneak my digital camera
