Everything is digital these days and everything is done online. Sometimes when new technology comes along it’s difficult to say whether it will come and go, or whether it is here to stay. This is no different with the world of photography. Before they came out with digital photography they tried to push a new kind of film called Advanced Photo System – or APS – which was a different kind of film from 35mm. They thought that this kind of film would take off, in part because it was easier to load than 35mm film and had less of a chance of user error. But unfortunately for the makers of APS film, it didn’t end up taking off. This is the perfect example of not being sure if a certain new kind of product or technology is going to stick around. People often want to wait to see how well a product does before they switch over to using it. If you had invested in an APS camera years ago you might be frustrated now to find that it’s difficult to find the right kind of film for it. Trends in technology may come and go, but there are two things we use now a days that are definitely going to be around for a while – digital photography and the Internet.
Although there are people who still use film for photography, many people have made the switch over to digital pictures. This is especially true for people who are take photos simply for their own use and enjoyment. It is often easier to take a bunch of digital photos than it is to take a whole roll of film that you don’t know will come out the way that you wanted. With digital photography you can print only the photos that you like the best instead of spending the money to have the entire film developed and then each picture printed, regardless of whether or not it was a good print. Plus you end up paying extra when you have a print that you like and you want to make more copies. There are many benefits to digital photography. The Internet has also played a big role in making digital photography more popular. Now people upload their photos online, edit them, and order them all through the websites of their favorite photo printing places. For people who live in rural areas using satellite Internet they can either have their photos printed at a nearby photo store, or choose to have their photos mailed to them. A high speed Internet connection is necessary in order to upload the pictures in a timely fashion and use all of the features of the site, but luckily satellite Internet has allowed people from all over the country access to a high speed satellite broadband connection. You might still love you film camera, but there is something to be said for the convenience of satellite Internet and digital photography.
