Call me old fashioned, but it's taken me a lengthy time to comprehend the appeal of digital cameras. My clunky old SLR has been a trusty pal for years now. When I pull out rolls of 35m film I get the strangest looks; tiny youngsters watch in fascination as although I'm a living museum exhibit. Taking images in to chemists for developing prompts sympathetic sighs from properly-meaning counter assistants and, often leaves me feeling like I'm from one more planet.

I know exactly where I am with my camera. Far more than this, there's such anticipation when I go to gather prints that I constantly really feel like a small kid at Christmas. Some photos are so much greater than I ever could have hoped for. Admittedly, a couple of magic moments have been lost due to camera shake or employing the wrong shutter speed, but that's anything that you get employed to.

I swore, faithfully, that I would by no means give up my 'real' camera. There's no delay when I click the button to take a image, Hipod I point and shoot at a individual in a moment - not a tenth of a second behind them. A lot more than this, each and every photo is preserved, I can't delete at the push of a button.

However, over the previous year, there has been a slow but steady shift in my perception. The rise and rise of a specific social networking web site has led to an expectation that every celebration, and each occasion will be snapped. You can be nearly specific of being 'tagged' in a barrage of pictures the really subsequent day. The whole nation has gone trigger-pleased. As a person with no a digital camera I'm increasingly left feeling rather vulnerable - there's rarely a possibility to see the photos just before they've gone public, and no chance to take equally incriminating, flattering or, down right funny photos of close friends to sustain some sense of balance.

Quietly, and discreetly, I've been borrowing friends' digital cameras and have to admit that they actually are fairly straightforward to use. Secretly, I'm a bit envious that they can take countless random shots with no any concerns about expense of film and building. I could take photographs and scan them in to a personal computer, but by the time I've completed a roll of film, taken it for processing and scanned photos in, the moment seems to have passed.

So, I've provided in. Not to say that I will ever forsake my trusty SLR, but I've lastly ordered a digital camera. After a couple of hours tracking down the best deal on-line I've discovered some thing that actually appears like a 'proper' camera rather than a matchbox with a video screen. No one will ever know the difference.
