If you're traveling with an untried camera, take advantage of a 1-hour film developing service and test a roll of photos. This precaution may spare you the disappointment of learning only after returning home that your camera was malfunctioning.
This is of course a great idea if you find yourself pressed for time before a trip with no time to test a camera; however it makes better sense to shoot a roll of film and have developed before leaving home. I figured out my almost new camera was skipping frames before we left for Disney World and instead of trying to get the durn thing fixed or spending more money on another camera, I just bought some nice Fuji disposable cameras. I took about 3 but then of course we needed more so just drove to a Wal-Mart and got for less than $4 ea. We were also filming with our Handycam. But anyway, the disposable cameras worked just fine and the pictures turned out pretty good!
