If you consider the total cost (camera, film, development), then digital
cameras are much cheaper. Once you've paid for the digital camera, the pixs
are free.

Sales of film cameras (and film) is collapsing. One of the Kodak
subsidiaries in Europe lost 25% in revenues in a single quarter.

That's a major problem, and it goes back to what I asked: is there a good
way to distribute digital images, especially to non-technical users?
