    Will the photopass photographers take your picture with your own camera, or only with theirs? I know it won't have the special features available, but I like having pics on my own camera as well! Thanks!

    The PhotoPass photographers can and will 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 will take your picture using your own camera. If there's a line of people waiting for the photographer, personally, 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.

    Just use your judgement about whether having two photos taken will impact the wait time for other guests.
