Just a note - another advantage of the digital, is for those family members
- and there are at least a couple in each tree, that screw up a picture -
they supposedly co-operate, but move at the last second. It was great with
one cousin - I was able to say with a smile - that "john" moved, but not to
worry, we weren't wasting film, so we could take as many as necessary -
still smiling. He of course relented - because he could not get away with
it! Of course, quality is the key as in a 35mm camera.
