    One Reason Why Film Rules

    Hahahahaha!!!
    If you want to annoy a Lotus fan you tell them it's an acronym....Lots Of Trouble Usually Serious....
    Having said that I'd love to own an original Elite with the Coventry Climax motor....or even an early Elan.

    I too went fully digital but then realised that if I wanted something important to stay I should go back to film.
    So snapshots and web pics and the like are on a point and shoot (albeit a rather nice one in the shape of an X10...) and the real shots I want forever are on a solid medium.
    Just as an exposed frame undeveloped is only a latent image, it does not exist in reality but only in potential, so is a digital image. And just like an undeveloped film it shares the inherent instability of a latent image.
    So I shoot my good stuff on film then I scan it so I can email/cheap prints for family/etc.
    But I've always got my originals...

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I agree, negatives are a physical object and short of a disaster can't be destroyed (although they do happen as we've seen recently.) One thing I do is I have an on-line backup service for my main machine so all my data is backed up offsite to servers designed and managed for that purpose.

    Do you mean C-41 colour negative film is less stable than E-6 slide film?

    Yes! But your latent image is only under threat from the ravages of Time and Physics and the Cosmos. That digital image must also deal with the onslaught of various corporate interests. No very good record against them exists.

    It depends how you see it. You can't expect to shoot any paid gigs with film nowadays....unless your film photography (large film format I assume) is something unique.

    I use film and scan all my negs and put the files on my mac and burn them onto disks.I keep my 30 plus years worth of negatives in my home, but as back up,keep the disks at my parents' house just in case anything disastrous happens. As for film being liable to fire, floods and theft, well so are DVDs and hard drives, but I know my negs won't corrupt in front of my eyes.

    Not true. I shoot commercial on film semi regular, particularly food.
