Is it true that the new digital cameras are as good or even better than photos produced on film?
I am a newbie and a noob and i can think of a few advantages digi cams have over film cams.
Able to preview the photos taken on a digi cam and then save them or discard them, with a film camera once u have taken the photo that's it. Unless u have a dark room to develop the photos u need to take them to some film store and get them developed and if they are no good well too bad.
Actually the above reason is good enough as to why digi cams are better than film cameras.
Second reason: Privacy of the photos. Suppose you do not want a 3rd party to view your photos. Again unless you have your own dark room, a person with a camera that uses film will need a store to develop them. A person with a digital cam does not need that.
