Well, i reckon digital is much better - you can get better quality photos by buying a camera with better pixels, if you end up with a bad photo, you can see it & delete it to try again & there's no cost with buying film & covering developing. If you take a lot of bad photos with the manual camera, you still pay for them to be developed anyway & it just seems to be a waste. I prefer digital anyway, i can use my digital camera as a cam corder, i can delete photos that are blurry, i can also only select certain pictures to be printed out!

that is one advantage a digi cam has because i can delete a picture if i don't like it and it's not expensive coz you don't have to develop it. You can easily print it yourself. Thanks for your preference.

I prefer the digital camera.Cuz if you don't like the pic,you can delete it.But with manual type,you waste some film.And nowadays,pc is very popular,why not store pics on computer,anyway it is more easy to edit.

Actually, both work about the same way. The difference is that most digital cameras have a view screen so you can see what you shot right away. Or, you can see it as soon as you hook it up to the computer. With film, you have to wait until you get it developed. With SLRs, there are just as many "adjustments" you would need to make as a film camera, but with instant results. I prefer a digital camera, but I like to use an SLR. I can't afford a digital SLR yet, so I still use film. It's a little more expensive in the long run, though. I use the digital camera as a backup.

I prefer digital camera is the best;Why i say this is ,easy to handle and can store lot of photos with the memory card placed inside.But the manual type is we can load a single roll at a time and that has to be developed in a lab;for that a separate charge.Instead a Digi cam makes our work easier and can view the photos in the system itself

Compact digital cameras are really convenient and easy to handle compared to manuals ones but, I still prefer using the manual. Adjusting the focus, the shutter speed and the aparture.. makes it really feel good to some extent
