There are many differences between a novel and its film adaption. Plots are twisted, characters are changed, and sometimes whole subplots are left out. But the biggest difference is that the film versions are images displayed on a screen at 32 frames per second, while the book versions are usually ink printed on paper, amirite?

Yes and movies force an image in your mind. whereas books allow you to use your imagination and create a whole other universe

You're right. I copied this from an ED article, and changed it a bit, but I forgot it's 24 frames per second.

I haven't actually seen the most recent HP movies, but wasn't Colin Creevey in the 2nd movie? Not a big part, but I remember him with his camera.

No, to me, the biggest difference is that a book allows you to become immersed in the scene much more than a film, if the author's any good. In a film, if the scene takes place on a cold,foggy morning outdoors, I usually don't really pay any mind to it. However, if the author describes it to me, I can't help but almost feel the dampness and chill in the air. It's quite awesome.
