The Difference between a Digital and the Film Camera


Still clueless about digital cameras? For starters, they
are basically the same device as the film camera which
captures images and stores them in a medium.

But aside from that, there are differences on how they
approach the concept. We will discuss them in this article.

1. Size

– digital cameras are unlike film cameras which have to
take into account the large slot for the film into its
overall design.

Since there are already slim storage media for digital
cameras, they have become slimmer and smaller than the film
cameras of old.

2. Image storage

– film cameras store their captured images in, well, films.
But unlike its older counterpart, digital cameras store
images in media such as compact flash cards, memory sticks,
secure digital cards and the likes.

The good thing about them is that you don’t risk destroying
the images if you put them out in the sun unlike films
which are photosensitive which means that there will be a
chemical reaction when the film is exposed to light.

Also, digital storage media can store larger capacities of
images unlike the typical 35mm roll of film which can hold
only around 36 pictures.

3. Time to see the image

– when using film in shooting pictures, one has to wait a
long time before seeing the images since they still have to
be processed.

However, with digital cameras, one can see the captured
image immediately after it has been taken. It helps
photographers a lot in weeding out bad shots from good ones
in no time at all.

Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Proverbs 29:18

The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.
Psalm 24:1-2

He makes springs pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains. They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. The birds of the air nest by the waters; they sing among the branches. He waters the mountains from his upper chambers; the earth is satisfied by the fruit of his work.
Psalm 104:10-13

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Matthew 6:26

How many are your works, O LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number living things both large and small.
Psalm 104:24-25
