I'll be off to Canada, Toronto in particular, for work for about 2 months. Thereafter will be going to US mainly north-eastern like Washington or New York.
I'm thinking of bringing both my film and digital cams there. But being a "film burner", I don't think even 40 rolls will be sufficient for 2 months! So I'm thinking of bringing a few rolls first and buying the bulk there later.
1. Do you know of any good photo shops in Toronto and US where I can buy reasonably priced pro films like Velvia, Provia, etc and do developing?
2. How's the airport security like? Just read that under new regulations, only 1 hand-carry luggage + maybe a small bag is allowed! Not sure if they take offence at tripods....
3. It's cold and snowing big time in Canada now with temp reaching below -10C. Anyone with experience on batteries or shutter? The last time I went to Japan, even though it was about 5 deg or so, the battery was flat in less than a minute! Didn't help to keep a spare as warm up. It just went flat in a short time too once exposed to the cold. So is a manual camera the way to go???
4. Any other advice I should bear in mind?
Hey thanks a lot guys for any useful tips and input!!!
