Modern digital cameras are capable of producing amazing results, compared with 35-mm film cameras. I still have a beautifully built and once-valuable Nikon F2 camera and some of the best lenses and accessories made for it, but I haven't used it for years. I also own three digital cameras, including a Fujicolor Finepix S7000, which has entirely supplanted my old F2.
"Darkroom" work on my F2 pictures was incredibly time-consuming, expensive, messy, and (in my case at least) prone to rather variable results. Processing digital photos on a PC is a joy in comparison, and all sorts of things are possible. The main problems with digital UFO photos today is that they are easy to fake, and even easier to mistake.

Although we usually tend to think of the digital camera as the best thing since sliced bread, there are both pros and cons with its use. Nothing is available on the market that does not have both a good and a bad side, but the key is to weigh the good against the bad in order to come up with the best of both worlds.
