I prefer DSLR because it gives you the control of a SLR but without the hassle of developing the camera film and the added perk of being able to see how the photo take resulted and simply delete it if you don't like it. Aditionally, you can vary the exposition, color, solarize, texturize and so on the shot taken without wasting photographic paper and being locked in a dark room with lots of chemicals. The digicam is good because of its simple 'point and shoot' aproach and its size, so can very well carry it with you at anytime to capture memorable moments.

I prefer film cameras, especially with black and white film. I don't mind using a DSLR, but I really love my film SLR.

I like both as long as it is useful so i just use digital and manual. Digital is easy to use and the other is not but its alright its just a little work.

manual... better pictures, takes more talent, and ends up more rewarding.

Sorry but I haven't tried my hands on a DSLR or "Digital single-lens reflex" camera so I prefer the digicam since I can story directly the images/videos on the computer.

for the moment I have a canon digital camera... and I think is quite enough for the moment... I mean people shouldn'y buy professional cameras just because they have money... thei should start with start with a digital camera and learn from there (bottom-up)... cos there is a reason why professional cameras are called PROFESSIONAL:D

Piano Soloist - This photo was taken from across the auditorium. I had to adjust the settings for the light comming from the stage and the very bright light of the panio light. Being an indoor concert I could not use a flash. I had only a couple of chances to take the photo. I was using a tripod and the canon rebel with a 50mm f1.8 lens. I set the camera at an ISO of 1600 and focused on his face.
I prefer the new DSLR models. I have a Canon Rebel XT DSLR. It is a great camera because you can use it fully automatic to full manual. It give you excellent creative control. It also has a video mode that takes alright video for what little I use of it. The photo below shows how you can use your creativity to produce a difficult photo.
