Background: I used to shoot for over a decade with film before my SLR was stole Now using DSLR
My two pennies worth:
The digital can provide instant feedback. This is good, except that this leads many to "chimp" . For me, the instant feedback is to check if the shot has correct exposure, especially if I'm doing long exposures. Other than that, I don't often review it. It is a skill that remained with me during my film SLR days. I too shoot with care; not shooting madly even though each shot is practically free. In the various shoots I go, a 3+ hour shoot only produced 130-160 shots. That comes to about 4-5 rolls. Film users on these shoots used about this amount too. Must be due to my old film habits
Digital more expensive up front, cheaper during operation: This is self-explanatory. Vice versa for film.
Size & Weight: The smaller digital cams, eg Optio or Exlim are small too
Time to turn on: Camera specific; *I* don't have an issue with a DLSR that takes <0.1 sec to powerup
Battery issue: No problems here. I do agree if the camera is going to places where power is rare or hard to get like Tibet or Mongolia. Otherwise, it is a camera specific issue. My charger, which is light and can take 110-240, with my 500-800 shots per battery per charge is more convenent than 14-20 rolls of films each time . Imagine that for a 3-week vacation, you have about 30 rolls (about 1.5 rolls per day) to bring there and come back, vs the charger + battery...
Easier to correct errors or make changes: Let's admit it, using Photoshop to make corrections or changes are easier in the dark room. Don't talk about rights or wrongs here: I'm talking about brightness and USM which originally came out from the dark room. Hey, who wants to boil their chemicals instead of using the mouse to solaris an image?
On the other hand, film gives you a more "personal" touch. With each shot using film costing more $ and time, etc, it is very personal and require a lot more effort.
I don't mind doing film as well as doing digital at the same time. I don't see it as a mutually exclusive thing.
