I've been thinking about switching to digital. Film for me is tough because I don't usually have the time to go out and buy film, have it developed, and the like. On the other hand, film is of clearer quality than digital. I wanna set up a darkroom in my house and learn that, but on the other hand I'm much more skilled at photoshop, etc. Do you think the digital quality is worth the sacrifice to switch to a Canon EOS? I'm serious about photography as long as I can keep going with it, if you know what I mean. What's holding me back is getting, shooting, and developing film. And as for being a beginner, it's disappointing shooting an entire roll to find out it was exposed incorrectly and have wasted $5.00. The bright side of that is learning from your mistakes. If I bought a dslr, I would still have the film and have the choice to take it up later, I suppose. What is your input? The price of a dslr isn't a concern for me now, as I have a job and over 1000$ saved up. What I'm really wondering is: Is the quality of digital much worse than film? My relatives and teacher told me it will never in the history of time, match up with film because film doesn't deal in megapixels. The thing that's so tantilizing of the Digital Rebel is you can have an auto setting (good for my parents) or total manual and if you don't like it, delete it... What's your opinion on quality? My digital camera at home sucks, might be a good investment.
