Vending Machine Cameras

Jan 12, 2001

Rochester, NY – Kodak is teaming up with Maytag Corporation to put film and single-use cameras in vending machines. They plan to roll out thousands of camera-and-film vending machines over the next three years.

Officials at Kodak say they want to satisfy instant cravings for must-have snapshots in morethan 10,000 high-traffic locations around the country like beaches, parks or ski resorts.

The machines will be operated by credit cards and will also offer film for both Advantix Photo System and 35-milimeter cameras. The cost for the vending machine cameras will range from $12.00 to $20.00.
