"Please excuse my ignorance ..."

... because I've never pushed the button of a digital camera. I have a couple of silly questions.

Am I correct that a digital camer - such as the D100 - has no need for color correcting filters. I (theoretically) understand that images may need to be processed in PS, but would, for example, a digital camera be more able to handle a scene with mixed artificial light sources?

Also, that is the actual effect of the 1.5 factor. Is it the perspective of the lens that is affected, or just the image size? For example, if I need to use a 24mm lens to get a particular subject entirely in the frame from a particular spot, would a D100 "behave" as if the lens has a focal lengh of 36mm with BOTH the perspective and image size of the longer lens? I guess in effect I'm asking if the resulting looks like it was made with a 36mm lens, or would it look like an image made with a 24mm lens, but simply fill more of the frame (I guess think about slanted lines in a shot of a building)? I hope I haven't garbled my questions too much.

Thanks -
