I recently went digital after my film slr died. I really wish they had digital when I was learning. The ability to see your shot as soon as you take it completely changes the learning curve. Can't beat film's quality though, especially when doing large prints. Everything has it's advantages and disadvantages.
yeah that would be awesome to be able see your image right away. talk about saving $$$ on film and developing (which isnt cheap). seems like it would be worth the investment but on the same hand image quality is a big deal. im no pro but those perfectly crisp sunrise reflections on a mountain lake deserve the best resolution possible. HMMM.... what to do?
im thinking about getting a new setup as my telephoto lens got stolen in Maui and then sony bought out minolta, so buying a new telephoto from minolta isnt the best idea. we have a small digital for candid shots at parties and such, but maybe ill get another film slr for the nature photos.
