Re: [DMCForum] gone digital (finally)

I use a 3.2 mega pixel fuji finepix 3800, i have it set at the highest
resolution and when i go and get the pictures printed out they look as
good as my old expensive 35mm camera.

  I have some posted here under the name "snextime" if you would like to
see them. also feel free to
join the site i have and use the site to host you pictures for whatever
you would like, it does not need to be Delorean related.
