Okay, but it sounds like you don't fit into the "most people" group. For
you, the value of a digicam would be a lot higher than someone who just
shoots vacation and family shots.
I'll go a bit further, and state that I don't believe digicams are a better
value than a compact 35mm film camera, for most people's needs. Digital
cameras are getting much better in terms of picture quality and function
(ease of use and printing), but they still serve a niche market. I think it
will be another 3-5 years before they overtake the 35mm film camera.
(Personally, I hardly ever use my 35mm camera now, and much prefer shooting
digital. But, I think I'm part of the niche market, along with just about
everybody else reading this newsgroup.)
