Guys, this is the end.
With a digital camera everybody will be able to make nice quality shots. No more need of better cameras, films, experience in photography, good scanner and some scanner-software notions...
No more slide collections (except the one you already have) and everything will be on your hard disk or CD-Rom's. Slide shows will be done from the PC with digital projectors, etc.
In any case: I will save my money and not buy a better 35mm camera or better scanner and go for digital in spring 2002, and if possible with at least 3.2 or 4.3 Mpx. Hopefully the prices for digital SLR's will drop after X-mas.
