Do the world's top photographers, such as those that work for Vogue and Vanity Fair, use digital cameras these days, or a traditional camera that requires processing?

Here is just ONE opinion:|
"Terry O'Neill, one of the world's most published photographers, has condemned the rapid spread of digital cameras for wrecking the art of taking pictures.
He believes that digital cameras are only fit for "amateurs and paparazzi", and that the technology, which is sweeping the high street, is turning all pictures into "snapshots".
They say that the quality of the new images remains inferior and that traditional negatives are a more reliable record of the past than electronic archives. Millions of photographs have already been lost because most owners of the new cameras never print their pictures out.
"You will always get better quality with film. You can talk to any darkroom expert about that," O'Neill said. "I don't use digital, and I'll always use film. Digital is for amateurs and paparazzi photographers. There is a great skill in photography. Digital cameras reduce everything to a snapshot.
Let's just see what develops.
