Subject: Digital VS analogue pictures

Written By: Dude111 on 08/25/17 at 12:02 pm

Which do you like better??

Everyone here probably knows how much I love analog and its warmth/depth... Digital is flat and sterile and that goes for pictures also..... No life in it @ all,no depth....

What do ya'll think? (I wont get mad if someone says they love digital.. lets try and have a good open minded discussion about it)

I was a hold-out to getting a digital camera for the longest time. My issue with analogue was the price-buying film, getting the film developed, etc.

What made me cross over to digital was our eBay business. It started with a cheapo camera (I think it was a freebee). Man, the pics were AWFUL! We then decided to invest in a good camera-a Canon. I brought down to Puerto Rico on a visit down there which my sister joined us. She had a digital camera and was basically showing me all the pics I could take. That started it for me. With film, I only take one pic of something and hope it will come out.  What I like about digital is that I can take as many pics as I want so if one shot doesn't come out, maybe one of them will.

As for quality, I think it depends on the camera-for both analogue & digital. And with the analogue, it depends on the film, too. With many digital shots, I think they look very life-like.

Yeah, that is one of my shots-taken with a Canon SX50-which has since died.  :\'( But, I did replace it with a Canon SX60.  :)  My first Canon died but I replaced that with a Canon SX200. I still use it. Sometimes the SX60 is better and sometimes the SX200 is better.

With digital you can edit and review pictures, not have to wait for them to develop and see whether they came out good or not. I prefer digital for that reason. That said, phone cameras need improving, especially the selfie camera.
