Do you still buy film, take it to the developer, and wait for the photos to be
printed? If so, you're wasting valuable time and money.
Digital cameras have many advantages over the old film models:
- A digital camera doesn't require a roll of film. This means you don't have to
buy film, drive to the store, and wait for it to be developed.
- You can take a lot more photos with a digital camera and print out only the
ones you like. The number of pictures you can take with a film camera is limited
to the number of exposures allowed on the film. If you want to take more
pictures, you have to buy and load more rolls.
Most of today's digital cameras enable you to take literally hundreds or even
thousands of photos by simply adding an inexpensive add-on memory module.
- Remember the last time you got back a set of 36 prints only to find that half
of them were no good? You wasted a lot of money on 18 useless prints.
Digital cameras eliminate this wasted expense.
You can preview your photos right on the camera or on your computer screen, then
print only the ones you like and simply delete the rest!
- You can print your photos yourself, either on an inexpensive ink-jet printer or
a dedicated photo printer. No more trips to the developer or waiting for your
pictures to come back.
- The resolution (megapixels) of even the least expensive digital cameras is now
high enough to allow you to take very high quality photos.
- The prices of digital cameras have dropped to the point where you can buy a top
of the line model for less than the cost of a quality film camera.
Considering the great advances in digital camera technology coupled with the
convenience and relatively low costs of owning and using one, there is really no
reason to ever buy another film camera.
