You missed my point, Dave. I didn't say it was the cameras fault that I deleted the wrong picture. I said that digital makes it too easy to delete something that you may have an interest in later.

Many photos of former president Clinton and Monica Lewinski, were discovered later by staff photographers who cover the president....those that used film based cameras instead of digital. The digital guys deleted theirs on the spot. What the pictures showed was that Lewinski always seemed to be somewhere in the frame around Clinton.

Also, to Randy above.

You don't have to do your own processing on your computer. Just take your smart cards to Ritz Photo, or any other chain, and they will print them out for you...just like a roll of 35mm, and the cost is almost the same.

Sure save a lot of time. Then you can enlarge the ones you like.

I have a Leica digilux zoom. I really like it, it's small and easy to use.

But, I can't quite shake my idea that my big ol' 35mm camera is my 'real' camera - the one I want to take the GOOD pictures with - the ones I want to blow up.

I've actually taken some really stunning pics (surprisingly so - I always am amazed when I accidentally take a good picture) with my digital one - and it is nice to be able to zap it to friends... but I can't help but feel, WHY didn't I have my Canon with me... I would have liked to blow that one up, etc...

Part of this may be that I always set my resolution on medium - if I set it on 'high' I would get more use out of the photo other than as an email to friends. Plus, my camera is 20 months old - so it's only a 1.5 million or so pixel resolution - which is also a limitation. The newer ones out there now offer at least three times as much resolution - which would solve my probs in that aspect at least...

long and short, it's a great fun toy, I take it everywhere with me, but I still don't plan to get rid of ol' Nellie anytime soon...

I'm not a gadget person, but my digital has been the best puchase I have made in years. With my Nikon 35mm, I would not have known that the picture of
myself and my 5 yr-old son was underexposed in a cave in Venezuela. With the digital, I previewed and took the shot again. And with the short videos it records, my video camera has stayed parked.

The digital goes everywhere, even when the PC doesn't. Spring for the 3.3 megapixels, the resolution is unbelievable (good 8x10, photo quality 5x7). And, you can throw out the bad shots at the end of each day, saving memory. I bought a compact one, and it wasn't even the most expensive of the bunch.

Have you read the other posts about digital cameras?

I have thoroughly enjoyed my investment. I bought a Canon G2 and I have had great luck with it. I bought an extra battery, and 2 128mb memory sticks and it has been a lot of fun. One of the best features for travel photography is the ability to stitch together several photos to make a panorama. My kids love this feature also, because they can be in the "same" picture several times.
