The Advantages of Digital Over Film

By: Dean McGowan

Technology has grown leaps and bounds in the camera industry.  For over a century the world was accustomed to taking pictures on film cameras.  Now, the film fed cameras will soon become extinct.  The only positive thing to mention about film cameras is that since the film fed cameras are no longer as sought after, you can pick them up rather cheap in comparison to the highly sought after digital cameras.  Other than that, there are far more advantages of digital over film.  Let us examine a few of the advantages.

First of all, with a digital camera you can take video and still shots.  When taking still photographs, you can view the image you just took immediately after the shot.  You do this on a small LCD screen, that ranges from 2 to 4 inches in size.  In addition, a digital camera  has the ability to shoot a ton of pictures on a small memory device.  Other options on the digital camera include, edit capacity, image stabilization, optical zoom and more.  The only real comparison to digital and film cameras is that you click a button to take your shot.  With digital cameras, once you have taken the pictures that you desire, you can take your digital camera to your personal computer, plug into the USB port, and download all your images.  Once the images are downloaded into your personal computer than they can be edited and stored at your convenience. 

Another feature that is nice with digital cameras is that once you delete the photographs from your memory, it is reusable.  Unlike the film fed camera, where you had to take your pictures and then worry about getting them somewhere to get them processed, now you can do it all in the comfort of your own home.  No more waiting in line.  No more hassle.  Now, isn’t that an advantage.

Moments in life are to precious to allow them to pass us by, without administering our option, of preserving them forever.  The technology is there.  It is at your finger tips.  It is plain to see the advantages of digital over film.
