That is not the reason for me to use films. I can buy a full frame DSLR this afternoon if I wish to.Originally Posted by icarus
The reason for me is that I just prefer the look of B&W images on film. Over the CNY, I spent several mornings in my darkroom, printing many images from 35 mm Tri-X negatives. Of course enlarged to 11x14 the grains were obvious. But I just love them!
The light reflected from those little silver halides embedded in the fibre papers is just so different fom that reflected fom pigments.
