    Actually, yes. And it delivers the news faster, and easier, and cheaper, and allows me to respond, and allows me to share it with others instantly almost regardless of where they are in the world.

    The iPhone, iPad (and all their cousins) along with the Internet have and continue to fundamentally change the way "the world" works; including how news, banking services, mail, & happy snaps are going to be delivered, forever. Like steam and electricity also did.

    Digital stuff isn't garbage, its just different.

    ... and those are some of the reasons digital capture has taken over consumer photography. In these areas film is NOT superior to the consumer and has been replaced by digital.

    However, film IS superior IMHO in the area of archival keeping.

    Saying "Film really is superior" is just 'one hand clapping'; you must specify the area(s) you are talking about for it to have real meaning.

    I think it's assumed here we're all talking about "art" or serious photography - and not crap consumer photography driven by speed of delivery.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    You may think it's 'crap', but for years it 'paid the film manufacturing bills'.

The swears while trying to find an article, the sheet that won't stay steady, the folding, the pitching it on the table. Reading the news? Quite a secondary experience next to the senses' overload of what a physical newspaper brings as a whole experience. iPhone? Meh.
    I love the NY Times on the iPad. References as live links to other stories, the ability to save articles for future reading or reference, plus all garbgeographs look vastly better on the screen than on newsprint.

    As to having my attention removed by the screen, I see plenty of people engrossed in a book, or newspaper or word search puzzle. To each his own.

    Hmmm. Quite the fine line to draw.

    Snapshot or Art?

    I'm not sure what you mean.

    I own 8x10, 4x5 and medium format film cameras for "art" or at least what I call art. I used my DSLR for my daughter's sports including select, high school and college fastpitch softball (she is no longer pitching now), family snapshots and my Ebay auctions. I wouldn't call my digital work art but some of the memories I have recorded are very important to me and my family.

    Sure, I could have shot some of the digital work using film but you just can't beat a DSLR like my Nikon D300 for sports. Film and digital both have their place.
