I never owned a regular film camera ever and the first camera I got is my 3.2 Megapixel Digital Canon Ixus 30, so I was a little apprehensive to the quality of the prints it can churn out. Most of the time, I set it to the highest setting which often eats up just over 1MB per shot.
Last week, a friend showed me pictures printed from her own digital camera and I wasn’t impressed with the outcome. Well, it was primarily due to the poor quality of the shots themselves and the low resolution rather than the finished print itself.
What convinced me to try it out was that DigiPrint was running a promo that time — for every 70 prints, you get 30 more for free. At the retail price of Php6.50 per 4R print, a 100 shots will only cost you Php4.55 because of the discount.
So I spent almost half a day, rummaging thru my picture archives and choosing the top 100 pictures I like to be printed. Actually, most of them were digital macro shots as I feel these are the only decent ones I am able to take.
Anyway, the nearest DigiPrint shop is just at Makati Cinema Square but when I talked to them about the printing, the promo was over and it will take overnight to finish everything. Good thing they have free home delivery via LBC so I promptly got the pictures early today.
I also bought a 50-watt spotlight and now eyeing a section of my apartment as a potential wallpaper collage wall.
