Digital is the way to go unless you want to play in a darkroom with old 
chemicals and such.

Several years ago, a friend who is a camera geek told me that the switch to 
digital by professionals was very abrupt.  Two things happened at roughly the 
same time.  A digital picture made the cover of Sports Illustrated and the 
airlines started xraying carryon baggage.

Since this started as a disk space discussion, there is a neat trick that 
generates lots of data.  If you want a picture with fantastic depth of field 
and your subject is holding still, you can get it.  The camera takes a series 
of pictures focused at different distances.  Software sorts it out.  If you 
have seen a fantastic picture of an insect, this is how it happened.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
