Yeah if you take a bad picture with digital it doesn't matter too much, but with rolls of film you wasted the film.

Just digital these days. I had a old 35mm film camera years ago, but I don't own that camera any longer.

I use both. For journalism, digital works best - you can have the shot into publication within seconds, if necessary. Digital also benefits the unskilled, who can check to see "if they got it", and re-shoot endlessly until satisfied.

Film, though, is more thoughtful. Skill pays off, and with larger formats, a slow contemplative approach works best.

Digital storage formats have, and will continue to, become obsolete. Computers crash, storage media and file formats become unreadable ( I still have plenty of data files on 5 1/4" floppies) either through obsolescence or through corruption.

Film, monochrome silver particularly, has much broader latitude ( so far ), and will outlast digital - an important consideration for those unrepeatable shots. Who hasn't wished they could have seen a picture of Grandma when she was a teenager?

Although, with the Digital Revolution, more photos are taken by more people than ever before, fewer of these shots will survive a generation than 50 years ago. Film negatives, though, will still be found in useable form, tucked into drawers and family Bibles, long after we are gone.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

I use both. Digital for color and film for black & white.

I suppose I use Digital More but, that said, I really like to go out and shoot Medium Format film. And I still like B&W film esepcially with the Hassie as it seems to have a different finish to it

Thanks
Tim

I use both, the digital is more practical so gets used more but I still love my Canon AE-1 Programme it still produces good results, recently picked up a cheap 24mm FD lense for it at a camera fair for £24, with that the 50mm and 70-210mm zoom it is pretty versatile.

After using digial for years I was given a Minolta MF cam and some glass. I now have a mess of Minolta gear and have expanded to Konica MF. I enjoy the film shooting, and the waiting for the surprise of opening up the envelope to see how my images turned out. No chimping there! Film has it's own look for sure and the film out there these days is really high quality.
