I had this brilliant idea a couple weeks back to take my Nikon 35Ti to a wedding with a couple rolls of film to accompany its spiritual sucessor, the Nikon Coolpix A. Except it didn't work out very well.
The ceremony was to be out doors, followed by a reception inside. So I put in a 36 shot Fuji B&W 100 ISO film, with the idea to change to a 400 ISO film that I was going to push to 1600 for indoors. Before the ceremony started, I blew off 10 shots or so, but due to high winds, the ceremony was pulled inside. Which meant I had 25 shots of film I now couldn't use, so I stuck it in my pocket.
About an hour later, I went to pull out the camera from my pocket and promptly dropped it, and the film door sprung open. Fortunately it was quite dark, but still several shots would have been destroyed.
When I got home I used the rest of the film up shooting the kids, so there should be some photos in all of that.
