Russ - With your experience, you won't forget that the lens is the key to a sharp photograph. You are likely to get as good a reproduction from a good lens with 6 megapixels as you might wish... a compact with lots of megapixels might have electronics but an indifferent off-the-shelf lens. In practice, the standard zoom lenses are so good that, although I can use my original lenses, I really have no need to, having three 'digital' zooms. Six to eight megapixels and a good lens allow you to enlarge a relatively small portion of the original with complete success, without pixeling. Wide aperture for a shallow depth of field has been no problem. Some 35mm slides of which I was formerly quite proud have been digitally improved... You won't be sorry to take up digital photography, I wouldn't go back to film, now... UB

Having a go at posting photos - trial - Image

Cregennen, at the foot of Cader Idris, SW of Dolgellau, Wales
also the Elan Valley, (absolutely no wind on the lake, the 'tunnel' is an arch above the water, shore to the right) both in 2006 (learning to use Photobucket) Image
and all my life, I have grown up with Jack and Jill, which are a 'view from where I live'... Image
