    I use it all the time, being a film nazi. I'll buy film until the last roll is left on the shelf. To me, they both have their advantages, but film is a warm medium, which I prefer.

    They say film is dead or dying, but there are still a lot of us still using it, and I don't feel like spending $1000 on a camera that only does equal shots as film when used with P/S. Don't flame the hell outa me, just my opinions.

    IMHO, the art has been reduced a bit by digital, with using software and other forms to "fix" or "improve" photos taken. I dunno, to me the eye of the potographer can see the art in the view finder when setting up a shot, and take the good and the bad, and learn from the not so good shots and how to use the exposure, aperture, ISO, etc. in combination with creativity and make art with out "oops. Over exposed. But I'll make it look like I took it correctly with Adobe."

    Yes. I'm a purist when it comes to art unless the photo is meant to be enhanced. My view is simply general photography, such as a landscape, abandonment, etc. Now doing a movie prop and such or making digital art, that does not count here.
