    Can we ask a Photopass Photographer to take a picture of us with our camera once they have taken a professional photo? Or can they only take pictures with their cameras.

    The PhotoPass photographers can take a picture of you with your camera, but whether I would ask them to do this depends a bit on how busy they are. If things are slow and you're the only guest having a photo done at that point, go ahead and ask. The PhotoPass photographer would be very likely to take your picture for you using your own camera. If there's a line of people waiting for the photographer, I would just have them take your picture with the PhotoPass camera.

    There are some PhotoPass situations where I almost always do ask a cast member to take a photo using my own camera. For example, at many of the regularly scheduled character greeting areas (such as the Toontown Hall of Fame) there will be not only a PhotoPass photographer, but also an additional cast member in the room. The additional cast member will often volunteer to take a photo with your camera at the same time the PhotoPass photographer takes his shot. This eliminates the need for your to pose twice.
