    I want to put underwater cameras in my oot bags. I found a website that has them cheap but the cameras expired 9/2007. Supposedly they were kept in cool temperatures. Does anyone know if it matters that they have expired? My wedding is in Feb.

    Thanks :)

      They are prob cheaper because they've expired. Try to find ones that are still good so they will work.
      Great idea, by the way. Especially for those who like to scuba dive and snorkel!
      I've got some great underwater pics from a Caribbean vacation a few years ago.

            Good to know, thanks :o)

                they say that the xrays wont cloud the film but the new machines do it still. not so much that you will notice, so regular day to day shots arent really ones you have to worry about. but film speed that is 800 or higher though you have to worry. in most american airports you can have them hand inspect the film but some places wont and will just run the film through. pretty much all disposable cameras come with 800 speed film these days so do all that you can to not have them go through the xrays
