Are digital cameras as economical as film.

Before digital cameras all you had to do was change film emulsions, when new ones became available, to improve IQ.
Now one has to invest in a new camera when an improved sensor comes to market.
Just sold my D5000 & a lens for about $200 less than what I paid for the pair 3 years ago.
Thats about 15 rolls of film, or five rolls per year. I usually used more, many more, than 15 rolls of film per year. When I bought my first digital camera I estimated it would take 5 years to pay for it in terms of film. It looks like their considerably more cost effective than originally thought.
Now all I have to do is convince my wife that I'm saving money by buying new cameras and selling the old ones.
