- Acad sounds alarm about fragility of digital prod’n – Sadly I had this conversation with my mother back when I bought my first digital camera in 2002. One of my reservations about going digital is the fragility of formats. Of course, a few years earlier I worked in Government Documents and file formats created a huge headache as there was no true standard. I am actually surprised JPEG has lasted this long. Though, I doubt many non-professional photographers understand every save at lest that 100 quality has the photocopy effect of amplifying information loss.
