Gone are the days when you had to wait for film developing to see how your pictures turned out. No more family pictures ruined because grandma's thumb was in the way. No more baby's first steps, daughter's first school dance, or other memorable firsts not captured because the picture turned out way too dark. Today, digital cameras allow you to preview, delete, and retake pictures in just a few moments.
Amateur photographers are not the only ones benefiting from this technological advance. Studio photographers now take hundreds of photos at a fraction of what it used to cost them. Images of every major cultural, sports, or newsworthy event appear on websites and social media in a matter of hours or even minutes. Movies feature spectacular visual effects that wow audiences. Diagnostic medical procedures have seen tremendous advances in just a decade. Look no farther than digital media to find the catalyst for all this incredible change.
"Leading Edge With Jimmy Johnson" features stories about how technological advances impact industries around the world. In this upcoming episode, "Leading Edge" will explore how the move from film to digital media has revolutionized so many industries and what those changes mean for you.
The series is distributed to Public Television stations throughout the United States and is not distributed through PBS. Please visit the Leading Edge website at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com or email the producers at info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com for more information.
