Anyway, the worse thing that can ever happen to a shutterbug is to check his camera 1 day before his trip and realise that the CCD chip is damaged!
My last trip, I was stuck without a camera. I was so restless...

In fact I think the risk is higher with digital, so many electronics, its a mini computer that you are using. The camera alone have so many ways of not functioning. The card get corrupt without u knowing. After you downlown and reformatted the card, your HDD crash......
Film not winding is just a small prob. I ever shoot 30 shoots before reliesing I have not load in a roll!

Both got risk
I ever took an entire overseas trip's picture on a 256k memory card, everything works so well until towards the end of trip suddenly camera reads error in card.
The card and camera had no problem, only that the camera can only write up to a 128k card after i re-vist the camera manual. Everything was good, luckily I took some film shots as well. Just to live with electronic risk.
As mentioned, film cameras have had its inherent risk too mentioned by some. I had to live with such pain too once in a while.
On the whole, I would point towards both medium of photography have its risk. Its a matter of how one manages it - exercising care, double protection, contingency shots etc.
Arguments for pro and cons can go on and on, however, at the end, neither is fool proof.

One thing I can say...
Electronic mode camera, be it film or digital have to be put to use ideally once a month as suggested by camera technician. If left unuse for long period, the electronic b'd or IC inside camera would be corrupted or deteriorated, and erratic defect error will normally arise.
On the other hand, traditional mechanical film camera can be left on a much protracted basis on your dry box without worrying that it would not function when you try to re-use it.
I think we have to be wary of such potential defect in camera use.

Another irrelevant post. This one slanting film because he can't load properly. You might as well blame the floor being too hard when you have constipation.

well you still can do it.. just borrow your kids pri sch science book ... there should have... if not internet lor.. also, maybe can buy own developer and develope the film first, then see which one photo to develope ... hee cheers..

Film & digital both have pros & cons.
But technology made our lives much easier.
