    just sold off my 10D and revert back to film. My current shooting really doesn't warrant a DSLR.

    Not sure who is like me???

    Work's time sensitive, hence digital.

    Non timesensitive = film for quality and effects digital can NEVER rival.

    This has very much blasted away the imagination that film is dead. It only proofed that there is a new format emerging from traditional photography.

    i use film for the kicks. digital for most of the time and for precious shots.

    mechanical film cameras are cool...
    but digital cameras are more practical and economical to use.

    Cant vote yet (cos I have less then 50 posts) but I have just started shooting on film again (some colur negs, and more B&W soon). Hey maybe I'll setup my b&w darkroom again (need to buy new chemicals and a new set of printing filters)LOL

    Have 3 Oly Om-1N bodies and one Oly OM-1 (completely mechaniical) and several Zuiko lenses. On occassion I will take my Nikon system for a spin - Nikkormat and Nikon FM.

    Digital - not yet lah - the size of dslr and the plasic feel of it is just not for me...still one day I may have to switch :-(

    Now use both. Film SLR for portraits. Carry digital p&s for street shoots.

    'Never' is a long time. I'll take a bet with you that mid-level digital SLR will surpass 35mm negative film image quality in 10 years or less. I'm talking dynamic range, resolution and colour fidelity, no quibbling about 'grain quality'. How about it? A case of fine Napa Valley Cabernet from you vs something of equivalent value from here in Singapore you like from me.....in March 2015.

    Just because a digital image is different doesn't mean it is inferior.

    think the evolution of man towards cameras should be film-->digital-->film.

    simple slr-->dslr-->medium format

    dkw:
    There is no need to step on F5user (that is to challenge his opinion), since it is not needed and uncalled for.

    I started with a range finder film-camera, then a point&shot film camera (Fujifilm), then move to point&shot Digicam (Canon A70), then today... I got a Pentax MZ-6 from clubsnap fellow. Will check my first roll results later .
