    I am a photojouralism student. While I use digital for the student newspaper I work for. I often use film for more long term documentary purposes. I took a film camera with me when I went to cover the occupy protest in my city. These are more for galleries than they are for publication as news. If I was doing a long magazine project with no quick deadline, I would probably use film.

    there's a guy whose name escapes me who, a year or so ago, was using a Holga to shoot combat in Afghanistan. He had an image published in Newsweek and when I saw it I knew it was a holga shot and looked him up. Googling "holga afghanistan" I find several Holga people working there...

    Ken Light still uses a Mamiya 6 as far as I know. I took a short workshop that he put on a few years ago and he had nothing nice to say about digital. A former classmate of mine was interning for him a year or so ago and was doing his printing. So I'm pretty sure he's continued to eschew the digital workflow...

    I believe that even the great Sebastio Salgado has gone digital too. :-(

    I believe he has, because at one time he had a whole batch of fast black & white film ruined by a rogue X-ray machine while passing through an airport. I suspect also demands from editorial markets may have had something to do with it. I'm a ex-pro who retired early, I can tell you that no magazine or newspaper that I know of will even want to look at your work unless it's on digital......on some newspapers the picture desk staff are so in-experienced they don't even know what a contact sheet is, let alone knowing how to read one!.......

    It's nothing to do with whether digital quality is better or worse than film....digital is the new political mantra....it cuts costs...(no need to have darkroom staff etc.etc.)..that's all that seems to matter today.

    As for me, now that I'm (thankfully) out of it, I could hardly wait to ditch my (unreliable, battery dependant) digital gear, and return to my mechanical film Nikons and Rolleis.

    I think the instant news cycle is a bigger factor than X-rays and film. One is much more likely to lose images because of a data/storage problem than from X-rays. But now, photographers reporting from the field have to get images edited and up and ready for print and the web ideally within hours of when they were taken to be newsworthy and commercially viable. For that kind of reporting, there just isn't time to scan film. After 48 hours, it isn't news. For longer term documentary projects, it's a different story.
