Digital Camera Classes Offered at Sandhills
Most people are now opting for digital cameras instead of a standard camera because of their versatility, including the capability to store photographs using a memory card instead of film.
In addition, photographs taken with a digital camera can be easily edited on a computer or right on the camera.
