This is a tough one.
re: hinrgresonance, I'm interested to know why you enjoy film so much more than digital. I agree with one of the previous threads on digital cameras that they often turn out very mediocre photos w/o any "pop". This plus their weight (mine atleast) and thief-magnet properties really clash with my backpacker (or better yet travel punk) m.o. But maybe that's just me.
And yes please do send your pics, i would love to see how they turned out! firstname.lastname@example.org
re: ryder, i sympathize mate, been there (not cuz of x-rays in my case but all the same). any way i'll definitely consider what you said, seems like everyone has a camera/film horror story. So let's hear more of 'em (and success stories too), especially those pertaining to single-use cameras.
You guys rock!
