Film cameras may seem to be totally erased from the industry though it is not completely extinct. The reason is that people prefer the use of digital cameras. It all started when Internet and social media websites became really popular. People often upload pictures on the web and they share pictures with their friends and family members through social media.
If you buy a film camera in this computer age, you will end spending more. First, you need someone to develop the film of the camera after taking pictures. You may find some photographers who still know how to do it but it will surely be hard in finding them. You also need to buy the film which is also another expense. Aside from the expense for developing the film, you also need to buy films for limited amount of shots.
Also, if you happen to make a mistake in taking pictures, you do not have a chance to change it or delete it. You end up wasting a single shot from the film. This is really an inconvenient feature of the film camera. Of course, one of the main reasons why they take pictures is to upload it on the web. It does not mean that albums will not be a good idea today. However, some people consider the web as a more convenient way to store their pictures. The only thing here is that printed pictures from film cameras cannot be placed on the web unless you scan them. So here comes another expense on your side: the scanner.
It is not possible to put the film camera pictures on the web without a scanner. The worst thing here is that the quality of the picture lessens when you scan them. Some part will be blurry or some part of the picture may not look good at all.
These are only some of the reasons why digital cameras are the best. You do not need to buy any films every time you want to take pictures. The digital camera allows you to take pictures as much as you want. You do not also need to look for someone who can develop the films. They can be placed directly on your computer. If you want some printed copies of your pictures, you only need to buy a photo paper and a printer and that is all you need. You can print all the pictures as much as you want.
You do not also need to worry of limited shots since digital cameras have memory cards that can store hundreds of pictures depending on the size. You will not have any problems on the quality as well since when you transfer the pictures from your digital camera to the computer, the quality does not change at all.
