    Can They Be Trusted?

    Has anyone heard of film developers of disposable cameras submitting copies of photos and film to the police?

    Isn't this illegal for them to do, and even once the police had the photos and your information it couldn't be used against you right?

    It'll be counted as stolen evidence probably, so it wil be struck from the court records. But the thing is from that point on the police will have their eye on you no matterwhat :p

    of disposable cameras? Do you have to send those off somewhere? If it's in your town then... be wary, however...

    It's not against the law to take pictures, for the most part. If you have action flicks and people's faces on the roll then I would be very careful where you get it developed. Probably some faceless guy in a mail-order lab doesn't care at all. Some lady behind the counter at WalMart might freak out but, like I said, if it's just pictures of pieces and stuff then it's just photojournalism, wether the cops come or not. Stick to the story that you like the 'art' and it's your right to photograph it.

    On the flip side, if you have shots of heads actually painting then that could be evidence of a crime. In that case they can hand your flicks to the Cops and the cops CAN use them against you.

    This is a pretty grey area type issue but basically the black and white of it is what I explained. Just go to WalMart or where ever and chat up the girl behind the counter for a sec, see how she seems and trust your gut.

    I have a solution....

    Start saving your pennies and buy a digital camera that has photodock capabilities and of course, a photodock printer. This way you can print all your photos at home without worry of coming under fire from snooping photo developers.

    You'll also save money by not getting absolute crap photos printed.

    I mean...disposable cameras? people still use those? What is this....the dark ages?

    these disposable cameras i had were from two years ago. although i'm still worried about mother fuckering rats trying to inform pigs thus putting heat on me. i might just be being paranoid though.

    i mean, it's not like they keep copies of customer's photos or are allowed to share customer photos with third parties or whatever by law right?

    Where not living in the 90s anymore. Invest in a digital camera. Its worth it.

    actually, I've already got a digital camera. who doesn't?
    the disposables i'm worried about though are from two to three years ago when I didn't have one. yet still.

    2 year old photos are probably way beyond the statute of limitations... just try it, don't be all shook.
