It's a universal fallacy that can make traditional photographers seem pretentious, even if they don't mean to be. Me: "I shoot film" (subtext: "I'm special"), Other Guy: "Ohhh, do you now?" (subtext: "swine")

I've found, however you say it, it's always a loaded statement.
Agree, but I always make sure I get the last word in, "... but it is mostly because I'm comfortable with my old gear,it still works fine, and I'm too cheap to buy new digital gear."

Isn't that a humble statement that balances the arrogant implications?
