I wonder how the cameras on space craft like the Hubble and and planetary missions survived so long? As far as speed, film has a quantum sensitivity of 0.25 whereas digital has a quantum efficiency of 0.5--it is very hard to improve on that. This is regardless of fill. So the implication that film is going to have better speed just does not hold up. Sorry, but my BS detector is going off with a lot of statements made in the video.
You would think people would use a process because they like it without have to invent technical justifications. Film certainly has many technical issue, just like digital.
Why can't photographers just get along?
