Well, I did it. I bought a digital camera. I went to Walmart a week or so ago and there it was...5.0 pixels and all. It came with a photo dock and cost less than $190. I've been against these things on the board but what the hey!
My wife has the 5 megapixel Canon Digital Elf because she wanted something small (and digital) to put in her purse. I have to admit enjoying the immediacy of the images...and further admit that I bought the 6.3 megapixel Canon Digital Rebel DSLR (and a couple of lenses) for myself.
I also bought an EOS adapter that will let me use some of my many neat 42mm threaded lenses on it! I won't ever "collect" digitals, like I have the many film cameras I own, but they can be fun.
I have a couple of digital cameras. Both are Fujifilm; F420 for the handbag and S7000 for more serious work but they won't replace my film cameras. Actually I use the F420 mostly as it's small and handy and the S7000 doesn't get much of a look-in. But digital seems a little soulness to me and I hate spending hours on the computer tweaking the damned images
OT, and re friendly insults, many years ago in the days when business letters were sooo formal, UK Inland Revenue officials always signed off their letters with the standard form: 'I remain, Sir, your obedient servant'.
After several months of haggling I finally had a letter agreeing a tax rebate I was claiming, and ending in the usual way. I wrote back thanking the local Inspector of Taxes and ended my letter: 'You remain, Sir, my obedient servant'.
Two days later I received a cheque with a formal letter plus a handwritten note (obviously so it didn't go in the files). It just said 'Ha bl***y ha! Don't spend it all at once'. Tax inspectors have got a sense of humour after all.
I did, though. I went out and bought my first Leica.
