We use our digital camera all the time, way more than we used the film camera. But the film camera--which was just a cheap canon slr from the 1970s--took better pictures.

In my experience digital photos are sharp and detailed but they handle mixed light really badly. They overexpose the bright parts and underexpose the dark. If you look at our website, you can see a bunch of pictures where this happened. Never happened that way with Kodachrome. I like a lot of things about our camera, which is a Canon powershot s2s, maybe 4 years old now. But if I buy another digital, I'm going to look hard not at "megapixels" or fancy features, but at metering and the "films" range. How doe sit handle extremes of light and shade.
