Turning the pages of a photo album is a personal journey to a near or far past, through which you remember all the good places you have been, the great company you kept and those comic situations that were caught on camera, and are now exposed for eternity...
Digital images were the decisive step towards cost effectively capturing memories and started a booming media storage industry. With digital images you can have your memories stored and shown on digital media, without the need to print and glue them in photo albums. However, it is good practice to store your most cherished ones in at least two different hard disk units in case one stops working. Many irreplaceable photos have been lost by not effectively backing-up.
The competitiveness of the professional camera market is also a great advantage to everyone. One can safely say that there isn't a bad digital camera on sale, and It's only a matter of which brand you prefer, or if you already possess expensive compatible options like a lens or a flash unit.
What frequently happens in the photography world is that having a better camera makes you want to take full advantage of it, and you become a better photographer in the process. Who knows, maybe a new hobby awaits you?
