As of today, the price of the PhotoPass CD has increased to $169.95
Wow, that seems like a lot! What was it before? I'm sure we got the CD and the book for less than that last year.....
:wow:!!! I remember when they were $99. This is why I just give them my camera.

http://www.disneyphotopass.com/previsitoffer.aspx I pre-ordered the CD and Photo Book for $149.95 you have to order before you arrive on vacation. I'm not sure if it is the same price for UK guests, but any savings by pre-ordering is a plus.
I pre ordered mine for $99, got a bargain, phew!
I wish they'd do it on the cruise.
It seemed such a good deal at $99, now I am not so sure.
I think I'll try and get them to use my camera, without them making comments about it being a Canon and pretending they can't use it
Ouch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was a little scream heard by my wallet!!!!!!!!!
I've never had problems giving them my Canon. Did you know that the camera settings are pre-set for the photographers? Some of those photographers are no more professional than my 2-year old neice.
I agree that some of the photographers are not overly skilled...but once in while you get one who knows what they are doing. I have a picture of my DS when we were on the teacups ( a shot that no one in my family could have managed I'm sure) He has the biggest smile on his face.
Don't get me wrong, we have had a couple of really nice Disney photo people who have been helpful and given us some good tips. We just ran into a couple of silly boys trying to be gadget heroes.
One guy told me my 50D was not very good and that I should invest in a Nikon like his I probed a bit about "his" kit and it was fairly obvious he knew a little about cameras but didn't even know all the features of Disney's camera. In the end we agreed for him to use "Green Square" for his setup :wink:
The second time was with the 5D MkII and the guy was going on about how "heavy" it was and how much it would ruin his day. I only had a 24-105 on it, I should have got the 70-200 out of my bag and then he would have know what real weight is!
He then proceeded to crop the picture so badly that we were only just in the picture. We compared his photopass one to the one he took with our camera that evening and it was so bad we were actually laughing about it
Personally I don't understand all the Canon Vs Nikon Vs Sony nonsense. I know my camera takes good pics and I know Nikons do too :unsure:
You would be surprised at how many photopass photographers have never handled a Dslr before being cast. I wanted that role for my CP and even stressed my knowledge of photography and didn't get it, however CPs who did, knew nothing about photography
That's kind of funny!!!!!
That is really surprising :unsure: You'd think they would at least try and match the skills! The first time photopass was around, we didn't buy it and asked some of the CMs to take pics - a couple said they weren't allowed and out of the rest of them, some pics were really good, but others awful - DB kept getting cut out :lol:
Is there still a discount if you pre-order? :unsure:
$165 is a heck of a price for a cd with maybe (depending on how well you use it) a hundred or so shots. You can 'Disney-fy' them after i suppose, but as has been said the quality of the shot won't necessarily be any better than you could do yourself.
Still a good discount....glad I ordered mine befor the price change.
I'm glad there's still a pre-order discount
I'd read at a usually reliable source it would be $129.95, but the pre-order link says $119.95.
A photopass photographer told me that they are not allowed to refuse to take a photo with your camera, most are excellent and take great shots, but, I have had the odd photographer who really hasn't made an effort with my little point and shoot.
