Hi Peter,

Simply develop only is a LOT cheaper, like $2-$3.

Amount of time to deal with (copy, organize, Photoshop, print etc.) 10,000
digital images...worth far more than $2100.  Unless you are unemployed, or
make just above $12/hour, or simply like spending your spare time dealing
with 10,000 digital images.

In reality, Peter, you're not including a LOT of expenses that, for some
strange reason, digital justifiers tend to handily leave out in order to
"make their case" for digital offering a "savings" over film.  It does for
some, no doubt, but for most people, it's just not the case.

Regards,

Austin
