Hi Sidnie,
In answer to the questions of why to buy and use a digital camera;
one major reason is that you can instantly see the image you just
took on the LCD screen! I have sometimes taken an image, looked
at it and realized that I needed to be closer, or I caught the edge of
the table in the picture, etc. This is a real plus in my book,
compared to conventional photography.

I have had my conventionally photographed artwork put onto CD at
the time of development and have been disappointed with the
results. With the digital camera, I just re-take the shot, change the
lighting, whatever I need to do.

Also, the freedom of knowing that one isn't 'wasting' film is really
great! The only drawback to digital camera mania is how many AA
batteries my camera will go through.
