"I know there is a lot of talk of pros abandoning film but don't you think that is a little of a blanket statement? I know plenty who have gone back to it for personal reasons even on paying jobs. Sometimes I feel like this site is mostly people who like to dabble in the technical side of photography, to fondle and load film cameras but don't get outside that much.

It's a big world outside of this here Internet and you might be surprised at what you find if you look...

Where have you been? Ever puzzle out why "pro" labs thinned out or vanished altogether across much of N. America? Could it just possibly be that "pros" were no longer processing the miles of film they once shot? Not sure about the "pros" you know but the ones in my world ditched film altogether 5-8 years ago and never looked back.
