    What are the advantages and disadvantages of a digital camera?
    I'd like more technical and computing type of answers, the ones i have found on the internet are more for people who want to buy one.

    Environmentally, with olde cameras you used to print out all photos. With digital cameras, you print out only the ones you want - or in most cases - none of them.

    Olde photos used a lot of chemicals and silver to develop. On the other hand olde cameras used hardly any battery - certainly no lithium.

    I don't know how you can answer that. They're different technologies. One uses a shutter to expose a photosensitive film to an image via a lens. The other uses the shutter and lens to expose a CMOS chip.

    There's no inherent advantage or disadvantage except from the point of view of the user.
