read an article in a photogrpahy magazine on why film won't die.. share wif u guys..
1) Film SLR camera are much cheaper.
2) Film are Fast, wif ISO 800 and ISO 1600. Digital camera seldom have such high speed.
3)Film can be enlarged.. alot. To blow up digital image, u need very expensive camera, but not for a normal ISO 100 negative with can be enlarge wif decent sharp image.
4)Film is Power-Stingy. Batteries last much longer in a film SLR camera.
5)Film doesn't crash. Images store in harddisk and flash memory are subject to virus and other attacks. Film can be stored for a long time.
6)Film doesn't required infrastructure. After snapping a few hundred digital images u need to find a online system to store and show case ur pictures. Films juz need an album.
7)Film is the orginal Photoshop.Special effects are achieved not through photographic software but at the time of exposure.
8)Film is RAW. in film all the "data" is on the negative, and can be accessed with proper printing techiques, unlike digital where the images are larges and difficult to process.
9)Film does not preclude digital. U can easily convert film to digital. .
Juz some sharing wif u guys.. feel free to give ur views..
