I agree with you Ian. Some photographers do look down their noses a bit at formats that are not similar to their own. I guess there are many here guilty of doing the same to digital photographers. Before the eggs are thrown ... I'm Not one by the way (digi photographer or snob that is).

I think it's up to the other Artists (without using the term lightly) to show the value of their type of work. Step up to the mark, talk about it develop it and get a following!
