(Sorry Paul, you are the only few available for direct comparisions, since we stood together!)

Well, it doesn't matter if I shoot K25/64 or Fuji , the color on slide just more vivid and prettier than on digital (beside learnt that Canon also melts
I think, not just me, some of you may agree with me on the color. I understand this is not a direct comparision as other user may change colors/levels before uploads. At least I didn't, the one on myshots are same color/level on the original slide.
My point is, although Digital are nice and handy and also I have been shooting quite a lot, I still prefer slides because of better color and collector value, it is the true form of photography. I found it difficult to get the right color or a more contrast color from raw output without alter it on Digital which I am disppointed about the color. (I tried Auto WB and Sunny WB in daylight)
Finally, as from the past few weeks, I have the chance chat to a few new DSLR shooter, some of them ask, I think the key issue of how to do well is, if you know how to shoot well on SLR, then DSLR is just built on the fundamental knowledge of SLR, you will get the hand of it easily. It will be harder for a person didn't have the experience of SLR and jump straight onto DSLR from a point and shoot camera.
Sorry it may sounds harsh on the new 10D shooter and any digital lover
Long live Slides!
Now go back to upload, got 2000 backlogs waiting for upload! Tell me your thinkings and experiences of how to improve color on Digital.
