Don't try stuff new on weddings. Be backed up in every way you can. And
back up the back ups.
If this ____________ jammed what would happen?

Wedding shooting is not for the meek or timid. Or unprepared.
Frankly it's getting to rich for my blood.

I only do wedding as a gift to personal friends. I tell them to get a pro
or somebody else to do the mexican execution group shots of the families.
I'm free to prowl ther church and reception and shoot at will.

December 30th I did a friend's wedding at night which mandated a flash on
the M3. The Vivitar 285 and M3 functioned flawlessly. I did manage a few
available light shots in the church which was still decorated for
Christmas. Supra 400 works for me. As a back-up I use a GR1. I send the
film to a good lab that prints bordered matt  4X6. I make a dozen digital
8X10s of selected shots and burn those files to a CD for the couple. They
always appreciate  the gift and say it is much better than a toaster.

If I blow it, I'll get a toaster.
