You are hiking and shooting on a cliff and you slip and fell. You managed to save yourself with one hand over the cliff. Hanging on one hand, your camera and a bag of exposed film is about to fall over the cliff. Which one will you "save"? You have only got one spare hand to grab whatever's about to fall over.

Assume you are damned fit and strong and can hold on with one hand for a long time. :)

you cannot use a digi cam for that...think you will have to use the early early camera that super big one to kill them...

I'm not very strong. So I guess I save the film. Much lighter :p
No but seriously, I think the camera drop can get new one. A solid frame captured may not come again. Unless the film is still inside the camera... not need to choose :D

Let the camera drop :cry: , save the film...
then assuming you get rescued and get safely home,
immediately call your insurance company and make the claim for new equipment!!! ;)

Moral of the story...
make sure your camera insurance is all in place before you step off that cliff!!! :p

Save the camera. The film will survive the drop, and you can go back to pick it up later. The camera will be destroyed if you drop it. This way you get to keep BOTH camera and film.

Of course if you have a couple of 1GB microdrives with lots of images inside, drop the camera instead (after taking out the 3rd microdrive in the camera with your teeth), because the microdrives will not survive the drop.

If you're a REALLY good photographer, throw both camera and film back up the cliff, and let go, killing yourself. Your pictures will be published posthumously with the accompanying story of your dangerous exploits, and you will achieve great fame. A good career move, as they say.
