    "Why Film Makes Business Sense"

    Does it?

    For my business, I'm 100% digital. Couldn't make near the profit I do with film. Requires a long explanation that I won't do here. Could go on about why digital is better for me but I don't want to upset the apple cart here.

    Just a couple of examples, when I was film capture only, the films costs, developing, getting "proofs" and/or scanning were around $250.00 per gig.

    Not included in this amount was the time I had to spend or hire out to get film picked up at my studio, taken to a lab, deliver the proofs & negs back to me & get them to my clients for review and orders. I was too busy to run around to have this done so how much do you think it cost me?

    Today, I can transmit an order to my lab right from here at my desk with my little MacBook and if I have the order in by 11 AM it's at my door the next day.

    I can go on and on but all I would do is P.O. some of you. I shall quit.

    Most of us are well aware of the digital workflow. Please do not belabor it anymore on APUG.

    Thanks. You're making an opportunity cost argument here. Funny but many working pros I know--especially with your type of business where margins and competition are tight--regret the sheer amount of time they spend in post-production relative to their days with an all-film workflow--only a few can afford a dedicated technician they trust with their PS work.

    Lots of contrived arguments, falsehoods, and plain wrong ideas tailored to fit the premise "Film Makes Business Sense". Lots of bluster, religion, and manipulative comments.

    Generally, and for most photographic applications, one will make a heck of a lot more profit margin shooting digital over film. And more then often with high quality too. Often artists shoot digital and print on silver halide paper and the results are immaculate.

    I shoot film 99% of the time, and prefer film, but I'm not going to join other enthusiasts in jabbing the other media just to somehow bolster my love for film. People that do that are showing their insecurity, subjectivity, and are putting the primary directive: THE PICTURE secondary over the medium, and that is truly sad.

    The first casualty of war (F vs D) is truth, and that goes for both types of fanatics.

    Long live Film! More importantly, Long Live Pictures!!

    Since some persons are wretchedly bent on making this a D vs F despite a completely different intention by the OP, and a clear warning, well, here you go, thread closed. If you aren't clear on the APUG charter, please read it. We discuss analog here. Not analog vs digital, or the differences, or the advantages of one over the other. Analog. Period. If you can't figure that out please find another forum.
