    For me, there is still a slight tradeoff in quality (I've shot Canon AEs for years and have lenses, filters, et al. for that), but the ability to immediately postview your shots is indispensible. You know immediately if you "got it" or have to do it again.

    The thing that drives me nuts about digital is the latency, the delay between telling it to shoot and having it take the picture. I prefocus and still there's about a 250 mS delay. Long enough to miss that "magic moment." That drives me crazy. So many shots get away from you, especially with kids.

    That, and the fact that it's hard to get the effect of a narrow depht of field with compact digitals, made me go DSLR. I got the one kk mentioned, D100, and it feels just like a regular SLR. Difference is, my shooting rate has gone up about 2000%

    Nice wood work.
    I love studios with lots of beatiful wood.
    I'd love to design those rooms.

    That's the other thing I've noticed. You take LOTS more shots with digital. The ability to delete freely is really addictive. I find that my typical ratio of 1 in 10 great shots is about the same but when you shoot three times as much, you end up with better shots. And the ability to edit later is wonderful.

    Even iPhoto's little touch up brush amazes me. You can take 20 years off anybody in about 30 seconds.

    And one more thing. I took about 40 images at a Christmas party last week. Got them home, loaded them into iPhoto and noticed that three of the people had "souvenirs" of dinner in their wonderful smiles, stuck between their teeth. A few taps of the retouch button and the offenders have been squelched as effectively as brushing your teeth. Nice.

    Give that man a cee-gar!

    Nice job of spotting. Who'd have thought someone could identify an artist by looking at the back of their head. I'm impressed.

    Here's a picture of everybody except Melissa, the second engineer, who was taking the picture but deserves loads of credit for all her hard work.

    I could identify all of the beatles from the back of their heads. Try me, I could use a good cee-gar.

    Stay tuned. I have received permission to use some of the soundfiles from these sessions.

    I had three mics on the voice, two pairs each on piano and acoustic guitar. All the files will be individual tracks so you can mix and match. Should be very educational. Coming soon.
