i am just starting out in photography although i've been interested in it for a while. I have an old russian manual SLR so thats what i've ever used but i see all these people yammering about digital cameras and digital SLRs in particular. What're the advantages over using film cameras? Since it's digital as opposed to analog film, isn't image quality and clarity an issue? Can you create large prints that are comparable to film? what're the advantages/disadvantages? somebody help me out... i'm confused... Also how do you create large, professional quality prints with digital (where can you get it done and what kind of equipment would you have to use) ?
