In my exploration of photography, I've found that conventional and digital cameras are quite different. A conventional camera, also known as a film camera, uses a chemical process to capture images on film, which then needs to be developed in a darkroom. Digital cameras, on the other hand, use electronic sensors to record images, which can be instantly viewed and edited. While conventional cameras often deliver higher quality photos and a nostalgic touch, digital cameras offer convenience, immediate feedback, and easy sharing capabilities. It's all about personal preference and the kind of photography you're into.
