My wife for years worked in child support enforcement for the county where we live. During that time she daily tried to negotiate settlements between husbands and wives. When we recently had a discussion about several things that were being negotiated in politics she reminded me of a saying they had. There is no negotiation when one side wants to kill the other. I know that the digital and film camps aren't that bad, but we should face facts. It is like a twenty year old art institute photographer trying to talk with a 55 year old self taught photographer with many years practical experience. Most of the time they aren't even speaking the same language. So sometimes I wonder if it isn't more about new vs old, rather than digital vs film. Most likely nothing much is going to change. They will convert a few of us, a few of them will go back to film, and the newest ones don't know that there is anything but digital. One day film will die just because nobody will be left who knows how to use it. At least not enough to make it profitable for even the chinese to make film. Till then lets have another drink and then go shoot a camera we can afford to drop when we are drunk. One you can spill a drink on and be reasonably certain won't catch fire.
