I'd be surprised if film sales are more than 2% of 1995. Hope I'm wrong. Maybe digital opened up a new constituency of people who wouldn't have taken photographs before, because relative percentage of film to digital must be nearer 0.01%. Among photographers who consider themselves enthusiasts, I'd guess around 5% shoot film. However you look at it, film is pretty niche these days, but as a technology for which new hardware sales are next to non-existent, film is a massive success story. Compared to audio tape with a similar heritage, film is positively booming!
