There are a ton of great reasons for buying a digital camera. They are fun, simple, easy to use and very good for sharing all your great photos with family and friends. Even if you have no interest in being the next great photojournalist then there are still a whole host of reason to buy a slightly more expensive digital camera over a slightly cheaper film camera.
Firstly, and while it may seem a little counter intuitive, you can buy and run a digital camera for a lot less money than a similar film camera because once you have initially purchased the digital camera you no longer have ongoing expense of buying film. Even the cheapest digital cameras will work for a few years and you never have to pay for anything more than what comes with the camera unless you choose to! That’s a massive cost saving over a traditional camera.
Digital cameras are also a lot simpler to use than traditional cameras. Instead of having to take the film out and carefully store it until you found a place to get it developed, all you now have to do is plug the camera into the computer and most computers will automatically load the pictures. Instant storage and they stay the same forever!
Another big advantage to having a digital camera is that you can see the photo as soon as you’ve taken it. If you don’t like it then take it again instead of finding out after you have already paid to have the photos developed and everyone has left. You can even keep the photos on the camera and take it with you to the next family gathering to show everyone the photos you took.
Once you have the photos on the computer you can also copy and share the photos as many times as you need to without ever having to pay for reprints. You can send them to friends and family via the internet, even post them on a photography sites to share with the rest of the world.
You can also set yourself up with something like Photoshop, a program that allows you to edit and change you photographs to make some truly stunning works of art. You can use effects and adjustments to make the photographs really pop!
Even if you’re not interested in creating original works of art it is still worth buying a digital camera because it will be cheap and give you a flexibility that could never be afforded by a traditional film camera.
