    How much longer do you think it will be before we all start calling
    DSLRs simply SLRs and film SLR are called FSLRs or maybe film SLRs.

    Google comes up with almost 700,000 hits for "film SLR" and over
    15,000,000 for "digital SLR", so clearly at this point in time if one
    talked about just an SLR they most likely would be talking about a
    film SLR, but things change with time.

    The term camera can no longer be taken as a film camera, not too many
    years ago if someone simply said camera it was most likely a film
    camera, if it was digital they would most often call it a digital
    camera.

    I am just starting to see DSLRs call simply SLR, like in this link
    http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10041493-1.html
    But this is the exception rather then the rule, but for how much
    longer?

    Would appear that he is right then because even you have failed to post
    anything of any value about film, not that this is a film group mind you.
