    Digital cameras of todays are no match to film-cameras in term of image quality.
    Many sweeping statements.... facts or opinions??

    Not so much "throwaway culture", more like "speak my mind even though I ain't got a clue culture".

    How about a Leica Minilux PnS 40mm f/2.4? Built like a tank and fine optics Wish I had that again...

    These are the pictures that I took using Contax T3. I had blown up the pictures to 8 X 12 without any quality loss at all, really impressive!
    Image quality is important to me or I won't spend so much on a P&S and a rangefinder system.
    I did not want to start a film/digital debate over here. So anyone who wanted to start this, start another thread.

    Just insulted every digital user on this forum as a frivolous wastrel with no interest in serious photography or image quality. Maybe you can explain why Leica has gone digital as well?

    Same with my 300D and 70-200L. Image quality is important to me or I wouldn't have spent so much on a digital system and lenses.

    Just asking for it, so I obliged.

    As for the pics, not sure what you are trying to show except low res scans with little detail and lots of grain. I'm sure the T3 is a great camera so please do it some justice and post a link to full sized pics or 100% crops of good high res scans, I will be very interested in viewing.

    I must say misnomer is spot on. It's easy to hit and run isn't it . Make some inane statement and then say "just my opinion, don't flame me!". I think if somebody wants to say "digital is throwaway, can't match film", then stand and fight your position!

    Cheers,

    Huh?! Post a full sized pics or 100% crops of good high res scans here? For people to steal my pictures? Are you crazy?
    My defination of 'throw-away culture' means short-lived products. Nowadays, these comsumer-level or prosumer-level digital cameras are short-lived. After just a few years, the manufacturer will not have any spare-parts for repairs at all. My friend bought a Nikon Coolpix 995 for just a few years back then recently, his camera got some problems, so he send it to Nikon for repairs, guess what ---- Nikon Singapore quote the repairs at S$2000!! Nikon had very clearly soon that they are asking my friend to purchase a new camera. Do you think Nikon will produce a 2 mega-pixel CCD specially for you after 5 years? Go figure.
    Personally I will not spend too much money on these short-lived products.
