I love digital photography for a few reasons.
1 - Because the 'film' is free!
2 - Not having to take it in to be developed.
3 - Instant ability to check a photo to see if it's worth keeping or not.
The downside, is too many photos kept sometimes.
Also, no physical items like slides.
I liked film cameras, but the cost was so much more w/ film and developing.
Keep taking them of him; you'll never regret that.
