The future is here already :-)" I won't speak for the rest of Europe, but in the UK the D1 is *IT* as far as press work's concerned. The big papers have closed their wet labs, the images go to the picture desk via landline or GSM 'phone. If it isn't digital it isn't in tomorrow's paper. - -- David Morton firstname.lastname@example.org "The more opinions you have, the less you see." -- Wim Wenders.
