Hi Gene,

There are *some*, but I would not say a *lot*...

> Convenience and operating cost are 2.

Convenience I agree with to a certain extent.  But it is hardly convenient
to manage and archive digital images.

Operating cost I also disagree with as a general statement.  For some who
shoot a LOT, there is a cost reduction of sorts...  But, people tend to not
include the initial cost of the camera is typically higher, the cost of the
electronics (computer, software, printer, ink, paper, batteries, storage
media), cost of depreciation of the equipment, cost of storing and
archiving.  So, if you add in *all* the real costs, it is by no means
cheaper.

Regards,

Austin
