    Yes
    I prefer film where i want quality and perspective controll which is possible on large format. Similar is possible on digital too but for a very high price. Secondly i enjoy film along the digital as i always enjoyed painting along the film. Film will not die, canvas stands as an evidence

    Film is the real thing. Love the color, contrast and Dynamic Range of it.

    Love to dream up new ways to do it ( change developer, film brand, ISO, etc.) and just get my hands in the process. When I was digital I just looked, pressed a button, sorted through way too many photos for the perfect one, now I just compose for it while adjust the photographic triangle and wait till it comes to me, if not it wasn't meant to be.

    I love the magic of it, the simplicity of it, the complexity of it, the surprises, the tones, the feel of the winder, seeing your work with a lightbox, printing the image, the list goes on...

    Simply, the odour of the film as i pop open a fresh canister after opening the bright little box. The crisp affirmative feel of the film as it's threaded into the open teeth and the positive click as the first wind on takes the strain. The satisfying clump as the camera back closes (or the bottom plate clamps on). See the rewind knob merrily rotate as each new frame enthusiastically positions itself for the next picture, even as the last frame sings out its swansong and heads the train back to the canister. Waiting patiently for the song and dance of baths of chemicals and stand proud as little etchings of the marriage of mind and soul and light.........
    Regards

    1) I can take my Nikon F2, that has been sitting on a shelf for a whole year or more, and take a picture with it immediately. I don't have to charge a battery or wait for the thing to figure out it is a camera.
    (I'd never leave my Nikon F2 on a shelf for a whole year, or more, but I could)

    2) For every picture I take with my Rolleiflex I realize that I only started with room for 12 shots. I can take my time considering composition.

    3) I can process my film then either enlarge the image using a traditional silver print or scan and print.

    4) When I'm editing my pictures for that day I only need search through 12 or 36 images on a roll of negatives to find I just shot junk, rather than hundreds perhaps thousands.

    5) Since I needn't continually upgrade, I can become familiar with certain cameras. I doesn't really matter how thick headed I am, after 40 years with the same camera I can pretty well use it. I mean, whats to know about a Leica M2?; Shutter speed, aperture, film, focus.

    6) Film must be more permanent than electronic storage. I won't ague the point, but I will say that I have negatives of people that must be over 90 years old. So I personally know that film will last at least that.

    7) I can buy a lovely film camera, perhaps a Olympus Om-1, a Nikon FM, a Hasselblad 500CM, a Rolleiflex for much less than its digital counterpart. When and/or if I decide to sell said camera, I may get what I paid for it.

    8) The image from a $900.00 medium format film camera can pretty well kick the snot out of the images from a $10,000 digital thingamy. (this will change, but right now this is the case)

    9) I really like a good silver gelatin Black and White print done by someone who knows what they are doing, than what I have seen so far from a digital print.

    I use film only for BW because of the uniqueness of the photo.
    It is on the film as it is shot and doesnt need the electronic provessing from RGB to BW. For me this is more authentic.
