    Started with digital, switched to film, will someday buy a digital camera, still keep shooting film, and will end up using both extensively.

    Started with digital, tried film and may use it occasionally but it will be mostly digital in future.

    Started with film but have both. I carry my 10D with me everywhere. Digital is nice but some things are just better with film so I have been adding some new (to me) film cameras to my collection.

    Started many years ago with film and will probably stay exclusively with it for awhile. Thinking about getting a good used Canon F1 now that digital has driven used prices down a lot.

    Well I started with a really bad small camera.
    Moved on to a Coolpix 3100.
    Moved on to a Nikon F55 SLR.
    And am going to buy a Nikon D70 in a long time.

    started with a kodak point and shoot digital, bought a canon 2mp which had manual controls, then bought the digital rebel. I plan on using digital for good, however I am intrested in pickin up a film camera. mainly for b.w and infrared.

    there are often darkrooms on campuses. i've almost exclusively used those in the past year and a half.

    and it really is more intimidating that difficult. once you're familiar with the basics, it really is simple (to me at least), even though there's always some trial and error from time to time.

    and to answer to the question, i started out with film, gradually learned to process and print my b&w's and almost completely gave up on colour, then started doing it again, and i bought a 10D two days ago.

    now i'll use my film camera mostly for b&w stuff, and the digital for assignments and colour, that way i'll be able to be in control of every single stage of the process without any interference.
