And how much were his conversion costs.  How much 
did he pay for the digital camera?   How much for 
the new computer?  How much for the new 
printer?  How much for the fancy inks and spiffy 
paper?  And what about the need to upgrade every 
six months or so?  Film is cheap and film 
processing is cheap.  Digital is EXPENSIVE and really inconvenient.
