Are disposable cameras or single-use cameras the peak of decadency in the photo consumer world? Maybe the original peer group for such cameras were travelling tourists who forgot their camera at home. They can avail disposables at the town where they spend their holidays. After the journey they can give these cameras to their photo dealer who gives them to a film development company. What the customers get back from their photo dealers after some days are the developed films plus prints. The cameras will be disposed or recycled elsewhere. Nowadays disposable cameras are also a collector's obsession or photographic material for lomography.
