These days I use a digital camera. I used a camera with a film until 2003 when I got my first digital camera. I went around the world for a year in 1993 to 94. I took hundreds of photos and got them developed in Australia and South East Asia. I kept the photos and sent the negatives home by post. The photos were heavy to carry around. I used up much film and wasted photos trying to get good pictures of wildlife especially sea animals like dolphins. With digital photography I can keep all my travel photos on memory cards. I can view then whenever I like and delete any photos that have turned out poorly. I used to have to buy 12 films at a time and I quickly used all of them traveling but with the beauty of digital photography I need just five memory cards. I then get the photos put on CD Roms. How fantastic. I wish you happy photography.

Its funny that you mention this. I was asking my friend what I should do with my old 35 mm film camera. She had no idea as we both own digital cameras. I had some half used film in the camera. We were bored so we decided to go on an adventure and finish off the roll. Tomorrow I will go get them developed. I think this will be the last roll of film I will develop. Digital Cameras have more options and connect easily to the internet. I also like the feature where you can see the photo you just took.

Nope. It sits in a dark corner and very lonely...lol!Ever since my mother-in-law gave us a digital camera as a gift, I've decided to use that one as the "official" family camera. At first, I was using both. But it was kind of costly because I have to buy a film for the old one, which doesn't come cheap. Then have it developed which also doesn't come cheap. Then there's the digital camera. Finally, I told my husband to just keep the old one stored away and decide on it later. I'm all for the digital camera because for one we can edit the images. And there are certain ways we can use the photos stored in the digital camera besides having it developed the traditional way. Our digital camera is a lot of help for us because my mother-in-law lives in another country and the only way she can see regular pictures of her growing grandchildren is through the internet. I regularly email to her pictures of my son. Lot easier and faster than mailing them the old way.

I have to admit that I hate taking pictures ,and my son is the one who takes pictures in my house. I gave him a digital camera last year because he told me that you can make better pictures with digital.

the difference is that I think digital cameras have like a screen where you can see the pics that you have just captured while the camera with film...you need to develop it first before you can see it. the pics in the digital camera can be opened in the computer

I only use my digital camera. I forget to develop film, so I prefer the digital camera.
