Isn't a sensor, light sensitive material? And analogue at that? Please, let's be fair at least.

Once again, when we are talking about film vs digital capture, within the "fine art" realm, we are really blurring the line and that is NOT the market/buyers main concern. How many of you who actually sell prints through galleries have had buyers ask if the image was captured on film or digital? I've sold a decent amount of prints, between $800 and $1,500 and that question never came up. What matters is 1) Content. 2) A handmade print via a 100% traditional (for silver) or hybrid approach as is the case for most pt/pd, carbon, gravure prints produced today. One more time, in reference to Clive's original post (easy to get sidetracked here), I don't believe that digital capture/photography will elevate film capture/photography to a higher level simply because of its potential status as fringe, niche, whatever.
