So on my recent trip to Paris I brough my 35mm with me because my digital isn't the best quality if you want to blow up pictues (which I sometimes do). I am now a digital convert. Some of my pics didn't turn out how I wanted them to because of lighting, and since you can't preview on 35mm I didn't find out until now. I'm definately going to invest in a better quality digital camera for vacations.

What was everyone's moment of enlightent towards the wonders of digital?

(I was kind of enlightened before...but now it's a full-on switch)

A colleague offering me a very good digital camera for a very reasonable amount of money done the trick for me!!!!!!!!!!!

My sister got Cannon S-100 digital camera in 2002. I played with it for awhile. After lot of saving and saving ^___^ and with a very-irresistible good deal, I bought my first digital camera!
I love my camera Zoomming!

I borrowed a friend's digital to take some pix for my business website. It saved me time, film developing costs, and, if I didn't like the shots I had just taken, I could retake them again on the spot. I was hooked from that point on. Since I work in graphic arts, I like the fact I that I can go out, shoot something, and have it instantly on my computer to work with - presto!

I miss using my SLR, so it IS going on the next trip - just with less stuff in the bag so there's room for the digitals.

I moved from the north of China to the south. When packing, I noticed how heavy all the books, papers & photos were that I had. My luggage was well overweight, and I had to pay excess baggage for the flight. I decided that I can't keep lugging hard copy pictures around. Before long, I bought a digital camera. It's so much simpler and convenient.
