I'm wondering what the advantage to a digital camera is. The way the pictures are "developed" is through the computer right? What if you want a hard, tangible copy? You have to have a kickass printer with good photo-quality paper? Is it really worth that, as opposed to a normal camera that gives you regular copies plus lets you scan them to have them available on your computer anyway?

Somebody enlighten me.

They have a special printer which prints out pictures from digital cameras. They have special film in it, just like photographs have. It's pretty good quality too. You put it all on photopaper and stuff. I used one in high school.

I'm the type of person who prefers photos to be on the computer rather than in my hand... easier to organize and takes less space. Plus, I get to take a bunch of random shots and not worry about it taking up room on the roll.

When I want to print them, then it is easy enough. You get like 15-20 4x6 photo quality paper for like $5, and they come out beautifully on my Epson 740, which was only like $150 or so.

that pretty much answers the question....i would ask what you do if you want to show them to someone (offline!) but you answered that too. is it worth the investment?
