Not the little lcd on the camera, the big LCD on your desk. I either use the
web for distribution, (I'm sure you've seen some of my pictures but never
the back of my camera if you havent), or give the client
a CD. They can print what they want. I've not done work for a magazine  or
newspaper in ... at least three years ... that wanted me to fedex them
prints rather than FTP them files.  The Internet, I think it's safe to say,
is the new paradigm for image delivery. The price of printing is now born
mostly by the end user. If I buy a new digital rebel every year and throw
the old one in the garbage, I'm still saving $2,500. which is enough to buy
an M to put on my shelf and admire.
