Well, STAFFAN (hehe, I could just talk to you right now, but that wouldn't be any fun
). I have to disagree. Digital SLRs are still not up to the standard that they can be, by a long shot. We will be seeing quality that surpasses any slides, for sure, in the future. If you look at a picture that has come straight out of a DSLR (don't quote me on this one folks), it still does not look very good compared to the final 1024x768 pic that gets uploaded to A.net, so there is room for improvement there.
As technology advances, printers will get better, and thus we will be able to get better results from printing a digital photo than from shooting prints (which is probably true right now), and really you can't look that well at a slide without a slide projector, and even then I don't think its as good as a print.
Well, we'll see!
btw. Joe, have you been thrashing down the pints tonight? this doesn't sound like you at all!!
