How many times do you intend asking the same question?

The principle of f stops is the same between the two.

Slipe says there is more depth of field with a digicam!

More depth of field in a digicam is due to calculations of DOP using the lens' inherent focal length, and not the adjusted for sensor size focal length.

At a given aperfure, wider angle (ie. smaller focal lengths) give deeper depth of field, hence if calculating say 50mm versus the equivalent field of view from a digicam, the digicam would have greater depth. NB: this is comparing same fields of view, not equivalent focal lengths to 35mm.


Edit: potential for confusion - sorry, for all digicam references above I meant dSLRs as opposed to film SLR. P&S digicams are a whole different kettle of fish.
