Charge Flash : Similar to a digital camera, film cameras require sufficient lighting for the film to expose properly.

Stand 3-5 meters away: Unlike a slr film camera, you are unable to adjust the focus on a disposable camera. To ensure your photos are in-focus stand roughly 3-5 meters away form your main subject. If you are taking a photo of the landscape and there is no main subject, ensure the environment you are in is well lit. The focal length for every disposable camera is slightly different but the industry average is 3-5 meters.
