    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.
