    I have no idea yet, but will tell you once I get my 120 roll of Tri-X back from processing this Monday...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    This are my thots. Correct if I am wrong.

    It depends on the output.

    If you take a picture on film and then scan it, and show the picture on the screen or printed with ink or emulsions, then I think, in able 'digital" hands, there may not be very obvious difference.

    However, the difference between a silver print and a digital print is obvious. I am not talking about which is "nicer", but the difference between an inkjet and a traditional siver print will be obvious. It does not matter how good the digital print is. It is still not silver.
