Hi! This is Scott Vallance and I am here on
behalf of Expert Village.com. Today we are going to talk briefly about the differences
between a 35mm film camera and a digital SLR. The obvious difference is the traditional
35mm camera uses film. It comes in containers like this and you can get various speeds.
The big thing is once this film is in there you are kind of blocked into that speed and
that type of film until you are through with the film. On a digital camera everything gets
stored on a compact flashcard or something similar. There are several different varieties
of cards out there. What this camera uses is a compact flashcard. You can store a lot
of images on these things and then download them to your computer and reuse the card.
You never have to buy film or pay for processing any of that again. That is the big financial
difference between the two cameras. Cards just load in and each camera will be a little
bit different. There is a little bit of difference in storing these cameras also. The digital
camera has a sensor in it and it has a little bit of electric static charge to it. If you
get dust in there it will stick onto your sensor and then all of your pictures will
come out with a little dust speck on them. 35mm cameras are not quite so particular about
that. The nice thing about digital cameras is you can change the ISO setting in between
each picture if you want to. You can change to black and white and you can change to high
speed color or you can change daylight balance and flash balance whatever you need to do.
The new cameras really wonderful and are expensive but they save you a lot of money in film processing.
That is all we have to day. Thank you.
