My opinion, and from what I can determine for myself, is that both the digital point and shoot owners and the digital SLR owners have spent far more money on purchase, operation, BATTERIES, and UPGRADES of digital cameras, software, and support systems in a couple or so years than I will on film, chemicals, and paper in the next 15 or 20 years. And I am a healthy film, chemical, and paper consumer(film cameras and lens seem to be lasting forever). So, I don't think a statment about digital being less costly to shoot than film is a factual statement, but instead a marketing statement from the digital manufacturers to lure purchasers in much the same way as the pied piper lured the rodents to doom. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
