does anyone have any good advice for switching from manual to digital photography?
hmm .. from film to digital you mean? my film-SLR can be operated fully automated, and my digital-SLR can be operated manually
good advice? keep the crop factor in mind ... you lenses get "longer" in terms of field of view.
yeah i noticed that whenever i take a picture with my digital more of the picture shows up then i intended.
digital shows a smaller angle of view than film ...
also, with digital you more easily lose the highlights and shades. exposure is more difficult.
so overall would you recommend film over digital?
Would you recommend apples over oranges?
oh, so that was the question?
I think, digital is more convenient.
it is cheaper if you shoot alot.
resolution in prints is the same or better
I do both.
Depends if your camera is full frame or not though!
i know, my digital is 35mm, but most are not.
I have grown to prefer the crop of my digital. Makes good long lenses longer. I could never afford my fav long lens, a 600 f/4, but my 400 f/3.5 has the same reach in digital and is 1/3 stop faster. I love it! I cover wide with a 14 f/2.8. Also the crop only uses the sweet center of the lens. No worries mate!
