Here's a different perspective on the future of digital cameras:

The trouble with digital cameras is not only their complexity but their 
afterbirth -- cards, deleting files, battery woes, kiosk protocol, CD 
etc. Film retains its simplicity, but then so does the horse and sulky. The 
difference, if we're still horsing around, is that film evolves and the 
species doesn't.
However, horses win horse races. And film might win photographic races. I'm 
not being negative here.
