2. No film or film processing costs: though
a $40 memory card is more
expensive than a roll of film, it is reusable. Memory cards
become cost effective after the first few uses.
photographers, the cost of film and processing can easily amount
of dollars a year: I've spent more on film and processing
in my career than I have on actual photo equipment.
3. Extreme light sensitivity:
digital cameras can shoot in lower light situations that would
normally require a strobe with a film camera.
4. Greater depth of field:
because the sensor is so light sensitive, smaller apertures can be
used even in low-light situations.
5. High-speed strobe synching:
digital cameras typically sync at higher speeds than film cameras.
As a rule, only high-end film cameras allowed syncing beyond
1/60th of second.
6. Image storage:
Compared to film's limitation of 36 images on a roll, memory cards can
store hundreds, even thousands (depending on the setting), of
images on a single card.
