I believe part of "The Dream" being marketed is the "just do it" (now) and 
it is can be fixed later if it isn't quite right.  Perhaps it's usually 
easier with digital but there's little that can be done with a digital file 
that cannot be done in a darkroom.  Either way, it's pay now or pay later, 
and with the latter the debt collector comes calling . . . sometimes with 
painfully high interest rates.  A couple friends using digital have 
discovered this the hard way . . . spending considerable time fixing a 
critical photograph . . . and [re]learning the lesson that it's *always* 
better to "get it right" in the camera . . . digital or film.
