    There are at least two threads on this forum posted by noobs with questions about their digital cameras. The forum's title is clearly "Film Discussion and Q&A." Don't these people know what film is?

    I just got through a roll of Kodachrome yesterday. I've got to send it out to Dwayne's in a couple of days. But yes, I'm 19 and prefer film, thing is, there are no dakrooms anywhere near me! My college shut theirs down a couple of years back and I don't have the space or money to make my own yet.

    You guys have renewed my hope in film. I have been out of the photography scene for a number of years for reasons I dont need to go into here.
    I admit I was a bit upset when I came to the realization( false as it may have been) that DSLR tech was rendering my hard earned knowledge obsolete.
    Now, I am looking forward to setting up my own darkroom, buying some medium format gear to supplement my existing 35mm setup and going to town on some film and prints! As I mentioned in another post I have enough negatives to keep me busy for at least a year even if I dont shoot another roll.
    That said I do own a DSLR and am slowly learning to use it, but film is my first love in photography. Does this mean I have chosen a "side". Oh god.:confused:
    I didnt even know this debate was raging in the photography world, though I might have guessed.
