Anecdotal I realize, but in past years the sight of me out in public using a film camera would invariably elicit gently humerous to outright snarky responses.

That has markedly changed.

More recently I've begun to hear responses ranging from admiration to self-loathing despair. Despair as in, "I used to have a <fill-in-the-blank film camera>, but got rid of it when I got this new digital camera. Now I kinda' wish I hadn't done that..."
