    That's a fairly good comparison, however you have to factor in a printer + ink + paper etc. If you add in all of that stuff then compare, then I'm sure digital would be more than film.

    No way.... only printing your best shots vs printing every shot..... I've got over 8,000 pictures in my "my pictures" folder and since I got into photography a year ago Ive taken a total of about 18,000 pictures. No way in hell I could afford that if I was shooting film.

    150,000 prints x $.09 (Wal*Mart processing) = $13,500 +10,998.00 =$24,498

    I'll take two 1DIII's, work for a magazine, and not give a fuck about printing.

    And your statement is pure speculation. Printing for film is still gonna cost you as well.

    really? digital is cheaper than film? AMAZING!!!

    Now compare the cost to a 5D2 setup. 5D2 comes out way ahead!

    *sigh*

    I'll never understand why the people who don't need a specific tool are the ones who bitch most about it's cost.

    You'll never hear the people who actually understand and need something like the d3x crying about it's price tag.
