    Can I know if I am using a SLR Camera not a digital. Film have already been loaded. Can I change my lens? Will the light effect the film causing the photo be gone or what? :roll:

    Your film will only be exposed if you open the back or release the shutter. So yes, you can change the lens.

    They suggest you don't do it in direct sunlight I believe though.

    Its not much risk, they say that to cover themselves, but yes without a doubt you can change your lens.

    It's no different than taking your lens cap off (during which time light comes into the mirror box). So relax, and change your lenses at will.

    Like everyone else said there is no problem changing lenses. Just don't leave your mirror exposed for to long, never know what is floating around. Especially if you are doing nature photography in the middle of the woods.

    Or the beach. Beware SAND! Really, watch out. Sand is pure evil. Get it on lens glass or on the mirror and you're relying on a blower brush and the goodwill of any passing deity. :pale: Like I said, beware.
