Hmm. 5 cameras in 8 years. And they've been significant upgrades, in at least some ways. Enough to basically have me stop using the previous generation, except I did use D200 and D300 at the same time.

People shot a lot less with film, both in number of photos and in ways in which they shoot photos.

With digital, clicks are free, people get to experiment with all sorts of shooting, everyone who buys a SLR try out action shooting, many find after 500 or 1000 clicks, it is not for them. In film days, how many people could afford doing this ?

I don't think your film in your camera would survive this:

"A tourist’s underwater camera has survived a 9600km, five-year voyage at sea to end up on Taiwan shores after being lost in Hawaii."

"The memory card with photos of Scallan's Hawaii visit remained intact inside the camera."
