... and those are some of the reasons digital capture has taken over consumer photography. In these areas film is NOT superior to the consumer and has been replaced by digital.

However, film IS superior IMHO in the area of archival keeping.

Saying "Film really is superior" is just 'one hand clapping'; you must specify the area(s) you are talking about for it to have real meaning.
