Egypt is a perfect place for photography.

But if you want to take photos of locals, always request that from them before taking your shots. They'd probably agree.

Egyptians don't like foreigners to take shots of the dirt in street. Egyptians are so proud of their culture but they don't like those who emphasize and magnify their defects. So try to respect this as much as you can.

Taking photos of monuments are somewhat restricted. In some places, like museums, you have to pay a fee for taking shots and in other places the usage of cameras is not allowed for the possible harm the flash could leave on the monuments.

Never ever take shots of military sites or any other/similar strategic buildings.

Most famous brands of camera films are Kodak, Agfa and Fuji. Films are available in different sensitivities of 100, 200, 300 and 400 denominations. The number of exposures is usually 36. Price of a film ranges from 10 to 20 L.E. based on the sensitivity and the brand, and photo processing usually cost over 20 L.E.
