    Pure fertilizer. Put it in bags and sell it.

    I shot film from 1975 to 2000. I've shot (almost) exclusively digital since February, 2001. The degree of "satisfaction" I derive from a photo has NOTHING to do with the ease with which the image was made. There's a hell of a lot more to "satisfaction" in creating an image, in creating a photograph, than just stuffing the camera with a roll of Ektachrome or Tri-X.

    Again....trolling and film versus digital topics are really not supposed to be done on TPF, and you sir, F5 Penguin (your profile shot is the Nikon F5, a famous Nikon film camera...) STARTED your membership here with a one-and-the-same troll thread AND a film vs digital thread, advocating strongly, and with much effort, in-favor of film.

    In looking at your responses to various posts, you sure sound like you are trolling and stirring up a pot.
    This film vs. digital debate has been hashed to death for many years.
    If you want to believe in film, go right ahead but don't knock the guys who prefer digital.

    Good day.

    No point responding to anything, thread will get locked and everyone has had their say. Made my points clear enough.

    As for me being a film buff, soon as I get my adapter to run Photo Secretary and offload the shooting data from my F5 I'll be able to tell you the last time I shot anything on film.
    As for why the avatar and F5 in the screen name, I tried to use Penguin, already taken. I haven't been on a forum in 15 years so decided may as well use the camera I was using back when I was active on forums for old times sake and add it to Penguin rather than stick some random number or something after Penguin.

    Trolls are one post wonders too, you realize this? This troll has been out and about and helping a few members here as well.

    Folks, calling someone a troll is also stirring the pot. Unless you want to answer the question in the OP, just leave it alone.

    No, I wouldn't go back. That film is still being used is nice from my personal point of view, and it's interesting to see start up projects popping up here and there which are dedicated to keeping things moving (I posted a link to an article in a British newspaper about such a project a day or two ago), but digital is far too interesting and empowering to simply abandon. That said, I'm big on nostalgia and am currently considering the purchase of a 30D to complement my 10D.

    Just for the record, I'd blow up cell phones and social media as well. :icon_thumleft:

    I always find questions like these fascinating.
    Why wouldn't someone just not use/do the thing that that is disliked instead of forcing these ideas of whats right on everyone else? I find that a lot of western society has become a they shouldn't have it if I can't/don't want it. Instead we really should take on a more inclusive approach. If it doesn't negatively impact anyone else, who cares if he/she/they have/do a thing?

    It's a hypothetical. Maybe if people were less serious and angry the world would be a better place? Another hypothetical?
    No one can change the world by posting in this thread. You can get angry over nothing here or you can have some fun with it.
    I've come to the wrong place. :lol:

    That's a good episode!

    So are we hopping in the DeLorean or what?

    Wait, first we need 1.21 gigawatts. Do we have any thunderstorms converging on clock towers?

    We'll all have to meet at the Twin Pines mall. Somebody bring plutonium. And beer.
