oh my god. Crisis averted. I found my negatives. *clutches envelope* I am so relieved. I mean, I was really upset. I was missing a lot of them. "a lot". If you've seen my pictures, you know how many I have. I recently made copies of all my Justin pictures for someone. And the negatives were all gone. And the negatives are in strips of 4 pictures, so the ones on the same strips as those were missing too. Whole rolls of film were gone. So many of my favortie Lance pictures were gone. The picture I was going to get made into an 8x10 for dreamtrance was gone. But I have them back. I am so happy right now.

Is it wrong that I was crying over film? I mean, wow, priorities.

LMAO When I first looked at that mood icon I was like "wtf" cause I thought it was Sting for some reason. LOL I think I may be losing my mind.

That's why I use APS. All the film is run back into the canister, and I have a handy dandy book style keeper to put all my canisters back in. :)

Not to mention, it makes for really impressive panoramic shots.

Re: Ooh..
Thanks for pointing that out to me. :) I never really knew much about APS. I went looking around a little on the net yesterday to find out more info. This is something I may look into in the future. Unfortunately, it would require buying a new camera, which I plan on doing anyway, I just can't afford it right now. One thing I was wondering is if it costs more to get it developed. And in your opinion, are there any disatvantages to the APS?

I recommend the Canon Elph LT270 if you can find it. It runs about $129 and has a 65mm zoom on it. Fits in the palm of your hand, and has enough plastic to get past concert metal detectors. :) Really good camera at a really good price.

I usually go to Wal-Mart (shush, everyone) to get my film developed, and depending on the amount of exposures, it usually runs about the same as 35mm.

There are no disadvantages that I see. It includes the ability to take 4x6, 5x7, or 4x11 panoramas. The film is conveniently put back in the cartridge and you get an index print with cartridge ID in case you need to make prints again. Some people say that it doesn't have as high of a resolution as 35mm does. I don't see a difference, really.

If you want to see some pictures I took at the Memphis Celebrity concert with the camera, you can click here. :)
