Recently, I crossed the count of 30,000 photographs on my digital camera – a Kodak DX6490, which I bought in 2005 – 10 years ago. So, that amounts to 3000 photographs each year.
My philosophy for digital photography is ‘digital photography is free’ as earlier costs of printing are no longer associated with digital photography. Thus, we are no longer restricted by the number of frames in one roll of film. Take as many photos as you have space on the card.
The only cost involved in storage space on your hard drive. The additional cost associated with digital photography is when you need to keep multiple copies of the photos, to ensure that we do not lose old memories in case of a crash.
