Thread Name: BS: Digital cameras?
Subject: RE: BS: Digital cameras?
Mac Tattie, of course is correct about the advantages of film and good lenses. I have Leicas and a Rollei that I use. I assume, however, that Macgrath wants something for amateur purposes but that gives good quality. Most of the digital cameras include software that is suitable for the amateur and that will give good results.
Many of the makes use electronics from the SAME factories, so don't get hung up on names. As I said before, the 3mp is becoming the standard for non-professionals. Select one that is easy to handle and that throws in software.
As Mac Tattie also said, your final prints will cost you a lot more than prints from that roll of film you take in to the photoshop. It's lots of fun, though!
