It is funny just about a month ago we had a Guest speaker at our camera club from a local all digi store. I lasted about 20 min.( Most of our members are into digital now.I would say about 60%.)He did not mention nothing about
that this technology changes every 2-3 months.Scanners or printers are in thousands of dollars. Cartridges for the printers last for couple of months if you don't print much, each cartridge is $20, for a 30x40 Canon printer are $120 each it needs 6.My favorite store is slowly going digital.I have to say most of my stuff is coming now from specialty stores in the States.They look at me with a smile when I take my MPP to a field trip.They take a lot of photographs of me under a dark cloth.I am calm and contend that what I am doing is lot of fun and I have a place to share my interest with like minded people like your selfs.
Thanks Sean for a great forum.
I often get very positive reactions from other photographers when I'm walking around New York with my Tech V. Particularly if they are shooting digital, they'll say something like, "yeah, that's the real thing."
Nightly Wisdom: The constraints of film force you to spend the time to think about your image. Digital frees you from having to think about your image. Rather, the constraints of digital forces you to think about your finances.
Which one do you think will result in better images over time?
