How do you digital camera in futuregreenspun.com : LUSENET : Photography Singapore : One Thread
I like photography. But I am seeing alot of people using digital cameras and doing development and editing using thier computers. Where do you see the industry going? And what digital equipment would you recommend?

I have been a low budget photo fanatic for many years - even had my own darkroom about 20 years ago. My work has me traveling extensively and about 3 years ago I bought my first digital camera. It was convenient but no match for my Minolta SLRs. This past summer I decided to upgrade and was going to enter into the 35 mm autofocus world but after extensive research I decided that I had too many manual focus lenses to justify going the autofocus route. So I bought a Nikon CoolPix 950. It is one of the few 2+ megapixel cameras that is shutter priority, aperture priority, TTL flash, and of course auto-program. It also takes macros from around 2 cm. This camera has REALLY change my perspective on digital cameras. For photos up to 11 x 14 you cannot tell if it is digital or a high quality 35 mm and memory is cheap compared to film. A moderate size 48 MB flash card gives me 96 1600x1200 pictures. Now instead of rationing film I take hundreds of photos and experiment in all sorts of ways. Instead of playing with filters I now play with software and the results can be phenomenal. I also dive and 35 mm underwater photography can really be a challenge. I have just purchased an Iklite underwater housing and TTL strobe and with one dive in the murky waters by Singapore I am already amazed with the results. On the down side I feel bad that micro-chips and software are replacing part of the art and technique of film photography but I no longer feel guilty. If I had to do it all over again I would do it.
