Why Digital Photography Is Better Than Film

Jan 10, 2008
Digital cameras seem to be taking center stage in the photography business. The digital camera is usually easier to use and you don't have to pay an arm and a leg to get the film developed. Beginner photographers can easily produce great photographs with a digital camera where it takes a lot more skill and experience to use cameras that require film.

You might ask why digital photography is the better choice but the answer is really simple. With a good digital camera and a computer you can weed out the shots you don't want to keep without having to waste time and film. Another reason why digital photography is better is the fact that you can send the photo to family members across the country with the click of a button on the computer.

Reasons Why Digital Photography Is Cheaper

If you have ever been out somewhere and you see a chance at getting a great photo, only to find out you have no more film, then you already know why digital photography is cheaper and better. If you stop to run into a convenience store for film you will have to pay three prices for it and then the great shot will probably be gone anyway. With a digital camera there is no film to buy and no processing fee once the film has been taken.

Digital cameras require batteries and often they drain batteries rather fast. This can be compensated with high quality rechargeable batteries which tend to last longer and can be reused for several years. The smart photographer will always keep a spare set in their camera case at all times. The cost may be a little more at first but when you consider the cost of film you will come out cheaper in the long run.

Digital cameras usually come with a CD which is downloaded onto your computer. This allows you to download the pictures and look at them before you print them. Most of these programs also have an editing feature that allows you to edit your photos on the screen in front of you. Often you will be able to take a picture that is slightly blurred or too dark and turn them into a really good quality photo.

Another reason why digital photography is better is the red eye feature that most digital programs have. If the area is dark enough for you to use a flash, you will often get red eye as a result. Most digital programs have a feature that allows you to fix this. Most digital cameras require less light to get a great picture so you do not have to rely on the flash as much, but on those occasions where a flash is required you can easily fix the red eye problem on your computer.

If you are interested in getting into photography as a hobby or for a living, there are many reasons why digital photography is the right way to go. You can always store your pictures on your computer or a CD and only print the ones you want. You can also share your up to date photos with all of your friends and family within a few minutes after they are taken.
