    I shoot b&w MF and 4x5 analog, print in a wet darkroom silver and platinum/palladium. I enlarge negatives on to x-ray duplicating film for pt/pd but have found enlarging them digitally also works well. I find scanning negatives and printing proofs with ps is helpful to see if burning and/or dodging will be needed as well as what contrast controls I might need (use Aristo VCL4500 enlarger light source with Ilford mg fiber paper). I also will do some prints digitally with ultrachrome ink on rag paper. Occasionally you the right composition with something that just won't work in the darkroom and photoshop saves the day. Hey, you can even make photographs of friends and relatives look like what they think they look like.

    I use digital for family snaps and I've been scanning old family pics to build an archive.
    My personal photography is 100% analog. So much so that I jumped into 8x20 so I would not have learn to make large digital negs for contact printing my carbon prints.

    Nothing to do with cameras, but I wear an analog watch (a Citizen "Ecozilla"), and it gives me a laugh when a kid (teenagers) asks me what time it is and I show him my watch, only to find that unless it's digital, alot of kids can't tell time. It's funny, but sad at the same time.

    Only analog. My wife owns a digital but I have never used it, and probably never will. I live in my b&w homemade darkroom.

    The only reason I bought my Nikon Digital is to enter shows. Everybody wants images on a stupid disc. IMHO the only way to judge work is in the original if you can't do that by slide. The absolute worse way of doing it is by cd.
    You can have my film camera from my cold dead hands

    I use digital, direct from camera or scanned from negative, for any commercial use such as product photos since it either goes on line or printed by my laser printer. Itís great for quick communications through email. It has replace Polaroid more easily than film. However, you still need to know how to properly expose, light, and compose.
    I prefer film and prints for personal use, because the quality blows away anything digital. Even if digitized by scanning, film is superior. It also will last a lifetime, maybe several lifetimes.
    Film will outlast any computer, file format, or any back up plan. I donít need batteries or a recharger. My entire lens collection work as they should, except when on a DSLR which makes my normal a telephoto. No shutter lag. No confusion of what the %#!@ computerized camera or software is doing.
    I often thought that Kodak and others should have emphasized low cost scanners to encourage continued use of film by the more serious user.
    I would like to see both live side by side, happily ever after.

    All black and white is film, all colour is digital. Since I shoot mostly black and white I guess I'm somewhere around 65-70% analog.
