    The funny thing is, my wife won't use the viewfinder on her Digital Elph. She only uses the LCD. I think it's just not intuitive for people that the viewfinder might be a better mechanism for composition.

    The leave switched off in a drawer for months at a time, function works pretty well too.

    Such a shame about Nikon, though.

    "Providing someone somewhere is making photographic paper and chemicals you will still be able to take a 50 year old negative and develop it to produce a print which will last at least 50 years (100 for BW)."

    And failing that, there will probably still be scanners.

    The one issue that has not been addressed in any real form is long term storage of digital files (this is as much a problem for film shooters who scan negs to do post in photoshop). When people start seeing their memories destoryed that will be when the consumer questions the benefits of digital.

    That's it! The quote finally puts to words the angst I've felt over this whole thing. This is ground zero for my personal antipathy to digital.

    Spot on, vey well said, and mirrors the way I feel too.
