Okay. I have a Canon EOS Rebel SLR....had it for a couple years now and I've been satisfied with it in all regards. But then again, it's the only nice camera I've ever owned. Now I'm debating getting the digital model to replace it, since I'm spending a ton of money on film development and can't really afford it as a starving college student. I know some of the differences between normal film SLR's and digital SLR's. I've done a bit of research on those things. BUT, on a side by side comparison of IDENTICAL models (both EOS Rebels), what are the differences in film and digital versions of this camera? Am I going to lose some image quality with the digital version (as I have read)?? ANy other important distinctions (specifically related to picture-taking quality...I don't worry too much about features since all my pictures are taken on full manual or aperture-preferred mode). THANKS. I realize this may have been covered in advance, and so I apologize.....I'll do a search of the forum also. Thanks again.
