Question about Photography
March 29,2008 I bought a Polaroid pz1710 35 mm. camera with a roll of Kodak Ultra max 24 exp.For Our Granddaughters wedding and as we were taking the pictures the camera locked up and wouldn't do anything no winding no nothing, we don't know if any pictures were gotten or not, maybe a few at the beginning but when the wedding started here she came down the isle DEAD Camera. I was so Mad I wanted to through the thing everyone tried to help and the camera was opened so there may not be anything on it now, after the wedding was over we took out the film and put in a roll of Fuji film I had and I tried it and so far the camera is working jut fine but we are still taking pics.and so I have-nt gotten any pics. yet. But what do i do now take a chance and spend money to get a roll of film developed that may or have anything on them or just toss it. I don't know what to do. Thanks D.Legg (email@example.com)
Return the camera to the company and see if you can get a return or at least an even exchange. Get another roll of film and shoot casual stuff. Never test a camera, film or digital for the first time at any mission critical event like an anniversary or wedding. It can lead to potential disaster. Shoot the roll with the new camera if you got it exchanged and then have it developed at Walmart or wherever is cheapest. If it works, keep it. If not, don't. BTW, if you are ever going to have to shoot a wedding or anything ever again with a film point and shoot and don't want hassles, just get disposable cameras. They are designed to work out of the box with no problems. They are of higher quality then most people think for image qulity.
Polaroid used to make good instant cameras, but their 35mm film and digital stuff I wouldn't trust as much. It's not the real Polaroid which can makes only instant film gear. . It's another company using the Polaroid brand name to try and make otherwise generic stuff look better then it is. Their digital cameras have a poor reputation. I don't think their non instant film cameras are much better. Good luck.
