    1: Digital, instant feedback.
    2: Digital, instant feedback.
    3: Yes, if you mess it up, you are up a creek, no instant feedback, you have to know what you are doing and get it right the first time.
    4: Subjective, but if image quality was paramount, film.
    5: Neither.
    6: I prefer both, as each has its pros and cons.
    7: I have yet to see digital with the tonal range of film, especially in B&W.
    8: Film has no instant feedback so digital is better for testing quick compositions, better for knowing you have the shot in the bag, etc.
    9: Personally I believe that people who still shoot film in general take much more care with getting the shot exactly right, not just exposure, but composition as well. Too many digital snappers out there that just take 200 pics and when one turns out really good, they think they are a real photographer.
    10: Digital, instant feedback. Film, especially B&W, better feel for the imagery (subjective).

    Hope this helps.
