I love using digital cameras, I can take tonnes of photos and upload them onto my computer. I must have taken like nearly 200 photos in last week of my new baby. I also like to create slide shows them with the photos and put music in the background and special effects. I still however like to print some photos and put them in a album to show people. I also have a digital photoframe which is awesome to upload photos on there and display in the lounge room. How about you do you prefer to use cameras with films and have hard copies of your photos? Or do you like to use digital photos and upload them onto your computer? What else do you like doing with your photos, do you do scrapbooking?

I have recently acquired a new digital camera. I love to take photographs with my camera. Since I have been gifted that camera by my wife, I carry it with me on every important occasion and do not forget to take photograph of say parties, marriages and other such functions and when we come back from the function, we all site together and enjoy those moments through photographs. Photography is my hobby for quite a long time. Earlier, I used to take photographs with my film camera and used to enjoy those photographs. Wherever I would visit, I made it a point to take photographs of that place and then used to get it developed and paste it in my album. I have numerous albums and when I am feeling upset and bore, I just open those albums to cheer myself up. Now a days, even mobile phone with a camera is also one of the options for taking photographs. However, I find that print-outs of 1.3 Mega pixel camera are not so good. Good Post!

I have a digital camera to,and I am very happy because I do not give any money to print the photos and it is more easly for me to upload them onto my computer and print them very fast.

Yes I agree digitals are the way to go, very convenient being able to print them straight away rather then waiting for them to be printed at shop and then paying for them. Thanks for your response.

I haven't used a regular camera with film in so long. Like 1997... Since then it's been digital all the way. It's easier to amass tons of digital photos without needing too much physical storage. You can make changes and get creative with digital images.

Yeah digital is good to make changes to such as taking the red eyes out. Did not like that with old cameras many shots wasted with red eyes. Thanks for your response.

I honestly can't remember I used a camera that took film. It has been years. I only use digital cameras. I have started a scrapbook for the baby but I am not good at keeping up with it. I have pictures on my laptop hard drive and also on 3 different external hard drives. I have them on flickr and on myspace. I have photos all over the place!

I think it is the best thing that ever happened. Well, in taking photos, anyway. We have 2 digital cameras right now, and I like the fact that I can review my shots before printing them, than waiting for my film to be processed and be surprised on how the photos turned out.

I still use both, but since using digital camera is much cheaper than that of the one that uses film, I now use digital camera more often. I copy film and digital camera pictures to CD and we enjoy viewing them on computer. As well as it is much easier to upload to online profiles when stored to CD... and yes, I do scrapbooking.

I have a digital camera, and up until recently I was always taking photos of the kids and everything, but I seem to have less and less time to take them. Plus I have been uploading them to the computer and I have stacks on there, and I just have not got the time to do anything with them. I usually like to print them off and send them to family or put them into books and tell a story with them. Also my 2 year old daughter is at the horrible age where everytime she comes across anything like that she will rip it up, and so I am leaving doing anything with them until she grows out of it. Hope all is well still with you and your new little one.

I use both. I have a digital camera but every now and then i will buy one of those disposable cameras so that I can add pictures to my photo albums. I have had problems with loosing data on my old computer so i like to have a back up.

I like using digital cameras, as they turn out to be inexpensive than the film models. I use a Canon Powershot S2IS, how many of you use this camera?

I prefer keeping my photos in my computer. Photography has been my hobby since some three to four years from now. I take photographs of almost anything beautiful or strange. Some of them include a dog sleeping on a tree, where it got because of some reason I don't know. I saw it when I was on trekking to the woods. Another one was one when we were having a treat at my friend's birthday. The arrangement of the glasses were such that it deserved a snap. I literally take snaps of anything I look upon. I love photography as a whole.
