---Might--- not actually be cheaper...
In reply to PHXAZCRAIG, Mar 26, 2013


Some time ago Thom Hogan posted that digital might not actually be cheaper than film,

"Might" is the key word here.

  • If I would take only the same number of pictures as I did with film, digital is MUCH cheaper.
  • If I would have stayed with my D100 or D200 which was comparable with asa sensivities and IQ in low light, digital would be MUCH cheaper. I still have my D1H and my D200 and they both operate perfect.

But, while I want to be able to shoot at iso 3200 and get silk clean images and even at 25600, -which was impossible in film days with amateur gear-, digital might be more expensive.

So Thom wrote "might", which everybody knew.
