It seems like moving to digital is not just changing media, changing the camera. There is this underlying, discreet evil that requires digital people to keep up with the megapixel race. Soon, it becomes an obsession over cameras rather than over photography. On what the camera can do, rather than what you can do with the camera. I once was a digital man, on a Canon powershot A40. 2.1mp was seen as pretty ok at that time... now, nobody actually considers it. This race with new technology, is sadly endless... .
I'm on film now, and there is less distraction other than to worry about photography. No worries about camera body, as lense seems pretty much more important. You get a FM3a, and 10 yrs down the road it still stand up. You dont go around searching the web for new bodies..... dont go around gossiping about new technology. You buy it, u keep it ... and live with that intention.
On digital, u ask yourself, how long will it actually keep it before the next D-whatever comes around and forces you secretly to change it. This cycle goes on and on.... .
I was on digital, still is... but ventured into film partly because of this horrid megapixel , CCD , whatever race. I dont blame people to be in this race, more like technology. I'm waiting to get my hands on a DSLR, because .... its just so tempting. The evil inside me , or in the camera is pounding on my head. But I'm waiting for the next model up to come round, just to drive the last DSLR prices down. But.. wait, wont a new model come about within the next year ? Wont prices fall by half next year ? The wait continues...... lets wait and wait, until we grow old and die. At least for the less fortunate people like me, students who dont have money to spare. DIgital is Evil , downright evil.
