My thoughts must be too simplistic. They are: if you already have all the 
computer and software you need for digital photography then there is no cost 
other than the camera, digital storage, and print materials; if you don't 
have everything you need then  all your purchases are part of the cost of 
'going digital'.

Every person who buys a digital camera is going to be different. One can 
split the group that has additional costs into more groups defined by some 
arbitrary criteria. A logical split might be someone who has already 
purchased a scanner and software to be able to digitize film.

My original impression on this thread was that it applied to all people who 
purchased a digital camera but then there was a sense the discussion was 
only about those on the LUG; we obviously have some access to a computer.

All people run the gamut from those who only buy a digital camera and take 
their memory card to a kiosk to print out photos to the professional 
photographer who is going to have to have a computer.
