Digital Photography and Film Photography
There's a debate in which photography format is superior; digital or film. Is it the traditional film format or would you say it is the digital imagery of digital photography.
When discussing film photography there is many details to consider with the traditional film format. Film does not rate the resolution with pixels; essentially an estimate of the quality of film is calculated with 35mm film. It'll depend on the film you're using and even the camera that's used. Most standard film is 35mm film. Other points you need to consider when deciding about film photography is that you need to reload film when you run out of film. Furthermore film photography takes into consideration what size film you're working with and what type of lens your camera has, if any at all. Still there are instances where film photography has its place, mostly it depends on choice whether to use film photography over digital photography. If you happen to be a professional photographer or perhaps a freelance photographer that prefers film over digital then this may be a viable choice to choose film photography over digital. Film photography is older than digital photography. There are different sizes and structures that are used in developing film format photography.
Film photography does have its ups and downs and there's many uses in film photography. Make no mistake digital photography will display the highest quality in your images. Digital film places images on memory so there's no film to load or reload. In addition digital photography rates images in pixels, the higher the pixel the better quality in the exposure. Adding higher pixels you get much larger images which in turn will use more memory when you save your images. Digital photography also has its benefits; one is that you can take hundreds of photos using one memory card. A typical memory card these days are usually between 2-4 Gigabits (Gb). There's the ability to take high definition photos with some of the newest cameras in use today, especially with the SLR digital cameras. Another huge benefit over film cameras is the ability to see your photos in real-time by using the LCD viewfinder that most digital cameras have nowadays. Photos are viewable, editable, and can be deleted on the fly, unlike film photography where editing can't occur until after the film has been developed. Digital photography is convenient, fast, and affordable. That's why people choose the convenience of digital photography over traditional film more.
Lastly it's a matter of choice whether to use film photography or digital photography. Many professional and amateur photographers will use both standards. Large prints or photos for billboards and even advertising use the best features of film photography. Photos of people, photos that incorporate detailed imagery, and photos best suited for Television and the internet are used with digital format. Try a little of both and see what standard looks and feels best to you. Although digital photography is here to stay, it does have benefits and features that outweighs traditional film. However film format will still be here as long as there's a need for photography.
