    Sometimes I wonder it's even worth discussing ...

    I shoot both analog and digital, but when I say a blog post claiming that the end of Kodachrome marked the end of film as we know it.

    http://www.pixiq.com/article/the-las...-of-kodachrome

    I had to jump in and comment. Both in that post and a follow-up

    I was amazed at the level of absolutist, dare I say fundamentalist thinking going on. I wonder if it is even worth having the discussion at this point.... :-(

    It's NOT worth discussing. We use film, they don't. Someone declaring film dead doesn't change anything and neither as arguing with them.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Can't see the point of the discussion, we use film, they don't, some use film and digital, I use film both for my own photography and for work, but I would not say one was better than the other, I just like film and the darkroom process, and I work in black and white, my customers are happy,I'm happy, end of discussion as far as I am concerned,Richard

    I agree. It's not worth discussing past a few comments as you will never get them to change their views.

    It's worth re-posting here, the link to the article which you referenced in one of your replies though: http://robertbenson.com/blog/2009/12...till-use-film/

    The sad thing is, that what ended it for me was the original poster dismissed what the photog's were saying in that article as mere "emotional reactions"

    No, it's not worth discussing.
