For many small photo businesses, the switch from analog to digital workflow is a major financial step. Badger bought his first digital camera five years ago and watched as the technology improved dramatically. "So you have to replace, and that's costly," he says. He likes to work in medium format, "but there was no way I could afford a $24,000 digital back for my Hasselblad." A year and a half ago he bought a 16-megapixel Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II D-SLR. "There was finally a digital SLR I could use in place of medium format," he says. "Now I save on film lab charges and the costs of transporting material to clients."
