It will be outdate within 1 year. Use it as much as you can. You don't have to pay for film and processing cost. Digicam is more expensive than film camera. If you rarely use camera, I suggest you buy film camera krub. You can compare price na krub. A40 = 13000 Charger + 2 set of NiMH AA batteries = 2000 CF card 128 M = 2500 So over all you pay 17500. With film camera Olympus mju zoom 80wide = 9000 So you have 8500 for film and processing cost. All price above are estimation na krub. You have to check price yourself then calculate and make decision.
