As above, DSLR over film SLR....

Let me start:
- No need to record photo shoot's data. All store in EXIF for you to review and learn.

Cheers!

Regards,
Arto.

Note: threadstarter is comparing DSLR with film SLR, not any other digicams.

Another advantage:
- instant review of image

The real reason??/....because everybody is talking about it.:bsmilie: :bsmilie:

actually after using film for about 6 months, i do not know if DSLR do have an advantage over film, that's why I am keeping my film cam for my "hobby" shots and still considering if I want a D-version

Hasn't this topic been discussed on say about a dozen threads before? :sweat: Anyways...

Ability to change ISO on the fly. Really one of the greatest advantages of digital SLR besides the instant review feature over film SLRs.

Er.. talking abt advantages over a film SLR leh..
oops so sorry....

erhm.... can shoot and shoot and shoot and shoot and shoot and shoot....

then delete those that u dont like, keep those u like, and need no spend money on developing.

i remember last time, when i was still using a film cam, not a slr that is, i already find it ex to use film.

5 bucks for film, process about 15- 21 bucks. 1 time go and shoot 36 pictures cost me 20-26 bucks... so lor..... is slr, might be worst.

my d70s now shutter count about 2K. wah, if use film.........

No need to reload at every 36 shots :thumbsup:
Just reload every 112 shots (RAW on 1GB card) :sweat:
Can check exposure using histogram on the spot

Interchangeable lenses, better feel, better performance and colour distribution as compared to compact digicams.
