What distinguishes photography from film?

All artists, whether they like it or not, are in some way restricted by the technology they use. Photography and film may be most obvious victims of this phenomenon, being arts whose medium is reliant on technology to the point that in some cases, if your camera isn’t “good” enough, there are some photos or videos that you will simply be unable to capture.

This article examines some of the implications–such as, in Vincent’s words, “Does the challenge of capturing ”THE DECISIVE MOMENT” still exist when you can capture a 14 megapixel image at 120 frames per second?”–of how technology can remove the restrictions photographers run into through a current (if expensive) example.
