    Ruby Photo at Peninsula. They always seem to have tons of it in the fridge in both formats, I tend to get my Velvia/Provia from them.

    Thanks for your opinion.

    I agree that for some applications, FF / APS-C sensor DSLR perhaps surpassed 35mm film. You should try shooting with a 645 or 6x7 MF from Bronica, costing $1k +/- for portrait with Astia 100F slide. Compare the colour with the digital prints or on screen.

    Of course there are space for both digital and film (slide here).

    Film got me thinking and slow me down. Digital is expensive, but effective.

    I tried sensia, but preferred Provia... the color is more rich for me..... Just shot one roll recently, and hope it turned out well.....

    D SLR better than Film??? Let's just focus on White Balancing alone..... I am sure you know who is the winner.... in term of color reproduction.

    Having shots slide and done 60 MP scanning on it, I think scanned slides still win a 18MP D SLR shots.....

    I am saddened by the demise of film...... but while my film SLR and film is still available.... I will try to have fun with it....

    For people who never shot film.... well, it is nothing wrong not to have shot films but you should never underestimate films.

    I think digital shooter have a different mentality from film shooter.

    Film shooter will think and plan what to shoot, ie. composition.

    Digital shooter is like wack 100 shots and hope for 5 to make it..... and they think they can go Pro liao!!!

    Perhaps you have this opinion precisely because you haven't shot film before.

    To further elaborate: Never shot film --> No experience with film --> Any opinions about film shall be considered baseless and subjective.

    You already did.

    Again, baseless opinion highlighting the depth of your knowledge, or the lack of it.

    Statement is too vague. What is it that have caused you to arrive at this statement? Do let us know the photography editing software, the printer that you are using.

    Please leave your interpretation of my statement aside. I am talking about applications in an overall aspect and only certain applications, not all. Surely a news journalist will find it more efficient with a DSLR than good old film for event reporting?

    I am quoting a fact, you are merely quoting an opinion, which is subjective. But I will say that I will still prefer the colours of certain slide films, which people are trying to emulate on digital.

    Ok, I get you now. Having digital sure is convenient....

    Somehow.... I feel less satisfaction shooting digital... Maybe cos I do not print as often, so it felt empty? I think I enjoy holding the photos... hahaha....
