Hi darts. I'm an amateur with over 30 years experience of using a film SLR, and switched to digital completely in 2005. I can say categorically that for me it's definitely digital. The biggest 'plus' for me is being able to see every shot as soon as it's been captured -- no more getting home from a holiday or wedding, getting your processed films back and discovering that the shot of a lifetime is ruined by light getting into the cassette or some other problem. With digital you can check straight away and take the shot again if it's no good.

Next biggest 'plus' is not having to worry about wasting film. Now I can take 5 or 6 shots of the same subject to be sure of having a 'keeper' or one that's better than the rest. And I'm wasting nothing -- just delete the bad ones.

Then there's storage. There are two camps on this issue. Whilst it's easier to store digital files on a hard disk rather building up a mountain of slides or negatives, I'm well aware that hard disks can (and do) fail. So I play it safe and have 3 copies of every image on 3 separate disks.
And, unlike negatives, they are instantly viewable on a monitor.
