    I'm rooting for film, period. I'm sick of hearing all the so-called "experts" at sites like the Creative Cow and Pixiq saying that film is dead and then sinking their teeth into us film users, telling us we're Luddites that don't change or constantly telling us "Adapt or die," especially when many film users also use digital.

    I'd love to see their "expertise" proven wrong in the future.

    Typical digital zombies say: "Adapt or die!" "The world is changing, change with it!" "Analog is old and nasty! EEEEEEEWWWWWW!" "Why should I pay money for getting my pictures when I can have everything NOW?" "Why shoot manual when you can have the camera do everything automatically?"

    Relax a bit, it is Internet hype man, if you talk to industry people in person you wont find nearly as much of this crap, seriously.

    Buy film, shoot film, make the best images you can and show them, be a good front man for the cause of film, that is what I do and feel pretty good about it.

    TexasLangGenius, they are not "experts" by any stretch of interpretation, just loudmouths out to poison the alternative art of film photography: a vociferous minority in the Kumbaya-holding hands style of toxic activism. The vast majority of digital "experts" have no formal training in the craft of photography like so many of us who have studied it at tertiary level then worked in business. Their knowledge is hand-me-down and in a great many cases just heresy. They will be proven wrong in the future, they've already been proven wrong in stating ad nauseum how superior their method of photography is over the traditional means (something we learned and wise have known since Nelson lost an eye). Let's not get all hot and bothered while we currently have so much variety in film and instead of idle discourse, load up the cameras and get out there and shoot!
