I do not have the figures in front of me, but if I am pretty sure that if I took a poll, I would venture to say that over 90% of us on PB shoot digital. I know there are a few who still shoot film and love it. It was not long ago at all of those digital cameras did not exist, and now they are an everyday marriage of art and technology that many of us seemingly cannot live without. This flick tells me that film does still exist, for now, even if it is in a disposable form. Cheers.

I think you're right. I never had the money to shoot much on film, even now my failure rate is just too high to justify it. Although I had a film camera, I could never afford enough of the stuff to consider it my interest. What I did like was that feeling of anticipation that you don't get with digital. But for me the anticipation too often preceded disappointment.
