Interesting comments on high cost.  Can you point out where I can get a FF digital camera for $100?  Maybe I missed where you can pick up a camera with a good 60 to 70 mp of resolution and 14-17 stops of DR for $600....I have apparently missed it.

Can you imagine omitting processing costs in your cost analysis?

Can you imagine front loading your processing costs to get a FF camera.  If someone shoots a roll a week...and believe it or not, the average person snaps less photos than that....it amounts to between 400 and 500 dollars a year.  Now FF bodies go for in excess of 2000.... So that's 5 years of use paid for up front.  Then after 5 years....guess what happens....you spend more to upgrade.....and it starts all over again.

As a professional shooter, my film costs me nothing....I just add it to the costs of the packages.

Sorry...you simply don't understand the topic....best to move on.

I haven't taken any offense at your commetns...as it is hard to see anything but humor in your rather limited and narrow vision of everything that involves photography.

Thank you.

You're welcome
