If I get a digital camera, what I have is ONE digital camera.

I like to have a choice of cameras too, to be refreshed and experiment.

I like to slow down and enjoy my photography.  It's all ASAP!! at work.
It's great to work to my own schedule off duty, and enjoy the whole process
from loading film to sleeveing negatives.  I need to have that negative or 
to hold in my hand or it's just not satisfying.
