Can anyone suggest a good throw away camera (I use them mainly because my mother yells at me if I use her digital camera :( )

There are plenty of disposable film cameras. They are all more or less the same.

Some pharmacy stores sell "disposable" digital cameras. Take the pictures and bring the digital camera into the store for development.

If you save up $100-$150, you can buy your own 3 megapixel digital camea, so your mom won't have to yell at you.

If I understand the question right.. you're asking for a camera you can get that can be accidentally destroyed in some fashion and not cry over?

I wouldn't know of any good throw away cameras, but any cheapo camera at sales at Fryz or something for under a hundred bucks could do.

I bought one for like 30 bucks on Black Friday and it's ... a camera. Lets just leave it at that :P

Or, you can go to a kiddy section and get one of those little cheap digital cameras...>.< The ones without the display.

This is the cheapest that I could find with a display.
3.0 megapixel. $55.00

They might not be throw-aways, but if you save up then it's a much better investment than repeatedly getting the disposable type.

Or...>.< Here are some REALLY inexpensive ones, but they have far lower resolution.
$15.00

$25.00 with 1.3 megapixel resolution.

If you're asking about disposable cameras (which I think you are), before I got my digicam, I used Fujifilm and Kodak disposables, and their picture quality is usually pretty good, but neither works really well in low light. I can't remember which was better, tho. ^.^
