Film or Digital?

Postby chocolatefudgecake » Wed Jul 19, 2006 6:42 pm

I just tried to take a photo of one of our Rabbits but the batteries have run out. And so I wondered, do you prefer Digital Cameras or Camera's that use Film?
I expect that most people like digital Cameras, but I prefer ones that use a film, but it’s now easier to get Digital Camera's.

So, Am I alone in preferring The "Old" Camera's, or are there other's who like them too?

I voted Digital. I find the image quality better, and it's easier to get prints. You can also edit them =]

I prefer Digital. This is because I have a tendancy to take too many photos, and it get's quite costly using films! I also like to see how my picture has come out straight away!

Two other points I agree with why I chose Digital =] x

Sorry, but digital all the way. How else would I have managed to take 99 photos on my trip to Belgium? I prefer ones that are reliable though - I have another digital camera that I used once...its battery ran out and it deleted everything.

It depends who you are - I find it easier to send the film off. I sort of like waiting to see what the pictures come out like.

Film is dated. And costs money to get it developed. Digital all the way.

I like how I can hold the pictures in my hand from a old camera and they don't feel like just a piece of computer paper. On the other hand, I like my digital because I can post pictures on my computer and they don't get fingerprints on them. I like both. But then there is also the thing about the battery on a dig. camera. And the thing about the film costing money on an old camera.

You can buy (expensively) photograph paper that will work and produce photograph qualitiy images on a standard inkjet printer.

But A) It means each time you have to print a photo you have to change the paper in the printer,

B) If you want to put it in a photo Album, you have to the photo out, and my cutting skills aren't the best. Unless you have a printer that prints on paper that size, which ours Doesn't,

Anc C) As you said, that sort of paper can be expensive.

i had to say digital because i like taking photos lots but with film you have to wait for it to be developed
Dyspraxia might restrict some of my capabilitys

But it also heightens my awareness :)

Digital is for conveniance and those who can't be bothered to pay for development.

Film is for better pictures and if you can be bothered to learn how to develop them yourself.

I use both, although so long as I develop them correctly, Film turns out nicer.
