Disposable camera

Just recently found a few disposable cameras I've used in the last 3 years or so. These cameras apparently have expiration dates on them (obviously they are now expired). Does that mean there's no use in getting it developed?

The film could be fine or it could have degraded some over time, depending on the age and temperatures it was subjected to. Often, degraded photos can be improved digitally, even if you need to have them scanned.

You may find some real surpeises!!.

Take them to Wal-Mart or any other photo place that lets you look at your prints before you buy them. If they come out, pay for them, if not tell them to toss them. No risk.
