The two digital cameras that I am using have been causing problems to me since I owned them.
For the Olympus C-2100 UZ (3+ yrs old), the problems I faced were unreadable SM cards and stuck pixels.
As for the Minolta 7hi (2 yrs old), I had to send it for repair due to the jammed shutter button and also once, the camera kept giving error messages during its operation.
The problems seemed minimal and the digicams were back to normal after the problems have been remedied but it can be frustrating when they happen. At times, I feel that I should have a film camera with me as a backup in case such problems happen again.
I have seen some other problems with digicams that my friends were using and the sad thing is, the problems occurred just after the warranty period ended.
1) To those with both digital and film cameras, which one of the two types of cameras gives you the most problems during your time of using them?
2) Is it a good idea to have a backup film camera when shooting using a digital camera?
Thanks for sharing.
