    There are very few times that someone knows I am using film. OK, so they always know something's up. I use large format. There is nothing like a "Huh?" comment generator like lugging around a 4x5 camera on a tripod through downtown Seattle. I suppose I've ended up on at least one blog with it. Other times someone sees "Holga" or my Rollei's twin lenses, and they know I have something different.

    But as for anger and feeling unsure, not me, and not a lot of other film-using photographers. I am utterly confident in my tools' ability to deliver the results I want. When Tim Parkin did the Big Camera Comparison, it was interesting to see that an 80Mp back was beaten by a Mamiya 7. That wasn't subjective from looking at random pictures, it was a reasonably controlled test.

    Unfortunately, when we go wandering about with our tools, we don't carry with us 30x40 prints demonstrating what film gives us. If we carry around a print, then it will be 8x10, or less. Of course at that size even smaller digital cameras compare well, and some people want to see a real sumo vs midget comparison.
