    I have moved your thread to a more appropriate forum.

    Also, you will need to be much more specific about your question.

    Your question is too vague to answer.
    You need to be more specific.
    The more specific the question, the better the answer will be.

    Do you have a camera now? What type is it?

    If you do not now own a camera, are you intending to purchase one?

    If your question is centered on how to use them "both together", or alternate between them, you may have to inform us as to any difficulties you are having.

    Put negative or positive film in a film camera.
    Make sure the exposure is set where you need it and that the image is focused.
    Release the shutter, advance the film so the next frame of film is ready to be exposed. Rinse & repeat.

    Make sure the digital camera battery is charged and that there is media in the camera to record the digital file (memory card).
    Make sure the exposure is set where you need it and that the image is focused.
    Release the shutter.
    Rinse & repeat after you verify the memory card still has space to record another digital image file.

    It can get confusing. I sometimes think my camera is broken because the shutter will not fire and then remember to wind-on the film. I have also been known to chimp the film camera, but I am not going to admit to that.

    I think that the OP is on the verge of an interesting question, but he needs to add some detail

    To use film camera: Load with film. Install lens. Go shoot.
    To use digital camera: Load with memory card. Install lens. Go shoot.

    Don't know a lot about that particular camera, but in general digital cameras tend to behave much like film cameras except that you have the added benefit of ISO adjustments to your exposure decisions. Also, the post processing is DIY with digital, so you need to spend quality time learning a few basics there.
