There are many advantages when comparing digital photography to traditional film cameras. These include:

  • Data can be stored on the image including date and time, type of camera, film speed and shutter speed (this is great for vacations); this assists in reviewing photos at a later date.
  • The use of a tripod is all but eliminated due to the anti-shake tools in digital cameras.
  • You can capture hundreds of photos for emailing and graphic uses without the need to print all of them and scan them into your computer.
  • You print only the pictures you want, so you can take a lot of pictures. And, by changing the settings slightly, you can take as many shots as you want choosing only the best quality to keep.
  • Storing photos on a computer is a lot cheaper than storing them on film, and they are much easier to access.
  • With a consumer-grade printer, you can communicate directly with your camera or its memory card and print your own pictures.
  • You can immediately view your pictures. If you don’t like the picture, just take it over again!
  • Film cameras are much larger than digital cameras with equal quality.
  • Without the expense of developing film, you can experiment with the settings on a digital camera, allowing you to learn new techniques with no additional cost.
  • Film cameras require a change of film every 24 to 36 pictures, with digital photography you can store hundreds of images on the same media device.
  • Digital cameras can now be hooked up to your television, allowing you to review your photos with an audience.
  • You have a home color darkroom for editing your pictures without the expense of a darkroom and its many chemicals.
  • No more scanning of photos to view them on your computer.
  • You don’t have to pay the high cost of film processing and store many, many rolls of film and photographs.
