RE: Digital camera, legal or not for documentaion

>From high profile cases it seems that Camcorders are used in trials with out
any problem and they are digital.  As with any photo, there are a series of
"experts" that seem to show up to verify the photos are unaltered.  I think
that the same methods for verifying conventional photos can be used in
verifying digital photos.

Is anyone NOT using digital cameras because they might not hold up in court
because they could be altered.  I'm not sure if this is a "urban legend" or
if there is some actual concern.

Any comments or references to actual laws?
