Digital Photography section

As title states, a thing lots of other forums have now.

An incentive to go out with your camera and get better at taking photo's

Maybe a Monthly Competition based on different types of photography. See http://www.forumanything.co.uk/

Re: Digital Photography section

nah... everybody has a gallery, and everybody has access to the LL. There was a photo comp every month, but it never really took off... I've no objection to people posting random photos, but I don't think it needs its own section... thats my 2p

You are misinformed. Just as with 35mm cameras digital cameras are available with manual settings. Some of my best photos were taken with manual settings.

Re: Digital Photography section

im not misinformed steve ... if youre using manual settings then a salute you!

but only people that can afford expencive cameras have them. 35mm slrs are far superior anyway. picture quality is far greater than digital even on the highest spec cameras. simply becuase a pixel will never be smaller than a molecule.

plus, the colouring on digital cameras in generaly horrible. fair enough if you want to go and spend thousands you will get a decent colour system but if you take a picture with a digital camera and then the same picture with a film camera, you will notice the difference, digital looks artificial. most people wont notice but i see it side by side every day being a lab technicial, its pretty easy to tell a digital shot from a neg shot, no matter what the quality of the actual photography is .

digital is too contrasty, and i know alot of people like that but i prefer the softness of film, plus digital is generaly too sharp aswell, and enlarging photos becomes a pain in the arse with digital. you simply cant enlarge to bigger sizes without the photos pixilating, obviously you can use the highest resolution possible but digital has a limit, if you enlarge a neg, it simply smooths out rather than pixilating.

each to there own but the only advantage to digital is that you can see what a picture looks like as youve taken it, but if you know what your doing, you dont need it anyway

I agree... if you want to look at photos and talk about photos, go join a photo forum as well.
(Note: I don't have anything against photos)
