Advantages and Disadvantages of Digital Photography when compared with Film Photography:

Here is a rudimentary list of advantages and disadvantages of digital photography when compared to film photography. This is defiantly not an exhaustive list, and I’ll add to it when I get the time!:

1) Digital photography doesn't require developing costs. You can easily print out digital photos at home.
2) Digital cameras can hold more images that a roll of film, usually. So you won't have to carry around a bunch of film with you, it can all fit on a memory card.
3) Digital cameras are made for all types of users, beginner to advanced.
4) Digital is the standard format now, film is no longer the usual. It is getting harder and more expensive to find quality film developers.

1) Digital cameras are more expensive.
2) Digital camera lenses are more expensive.
3) Film has a greater depth of field, and more latitude in the f-stop (in my opinion) when compared to digital.

As I said before, I’ll add more to this list of digital photography advantages and disadvantages when I get the time, but for now, happy snapping!
