    Analog cameras record on a medium, such as film or plates, whereas digital cameras record onto memory cards, via a sensor, or direct to a monitor.

    Analog film cameras are pretty much obsolete. 

    Save the lenses and use them on a digital camera if possible.

    The spelling of those words are the main difference.

    The main difference between analog and digital cameras is that the digital camera uses memory cards while the analog camera is dependent on the film and does not need a memory card for operating. Moreover, digital cameras also have a CCD/CMOS sensor.

    Technically speaking, there is no analog camera. There is film and there is digital. 

    They are basically the same except for the medium used. With film cameras, the image is absorbed and stored on film. In digital, the image is absorbed by a digital sensor and then stored as a digital file to a memory card.

    What makes the differences more disparate however are the lists of features each has. Even if the concepts photography have remained the same whether it be film or digital, the more recent technology of digital allowed to have more "play" and "effects" on the resulting picture. This increased level of creativity plus the wide availability of digital cameras pushed photography to the masses much more now than ever before with film.

    The picture quality from advanced surveillance cameras is fundamentally higher than simple, with numerous cameras fit for recording and sending top notch video. Additionally, computerized cameras are bound to have advanced zoom highlights, which can have zoom distances over 100ft.

    The words we use are, "Digital," where the image is recorded electronically, or , "Film," where the image is recorded chemically.

    Film can also be instant - where the camera spits out the image in seconds, or latent - where the film has to be protected from light until it can be chemically developed to turn the latent image into a visible one.

    Modern DSLRs started out as 35mm SLRs but the film chamber was replaced by a sensor.  Subsequent developments have changed things a bit, but if you put (say) a Canon EOS 5 35mm SLR next to an EOS 5D, the family resemblance is unmistakeable.
