What does it cost you? Out here in San Francisco the going rate I've  
found that I believe must be digital capture is $75 for a 100 MB file  
and as much as $275 for a 500 MB file. Per image, of course. The 30 MB  
file I get from the other guy - granted, it's a JPEG (his camera  
doesn't give him anything else) - is $12. Huge difference in cost.
