But how about film user? They need darkroom, solutions etc and their learning phase are quite costly as compared to digital user imo.

smurfman - Consider yourself placed on warning. Another attempt to disregard will result in your deregistation.

As much as espn and markccm may have caused consternation in the forums, it does not do anyone any good to gloat and keep on harping on the deregistration.

It depend what kind of photographer you want to be.

long before digital age, don't (pro) photographers need to know how to use darkroom? learn how to use large and medium formats?
don't they need to learn all the technicals about films, lenses, cameras?
don't they need to learn about graphic design?

it is still the same nowaday, is only just the medium from film change to digital.

If want to excel in this field, must learn and understand all related about photography.
or else,
will be still a cameraman for the next twenty years.

The Photoshop part may be time-consuming and at times a pain. But it gives photographers more controls over their images in print production.

Digital photography has eliminated the scaning stage where quality can sometimes be compromised.

And you expect results to show without any form of effort injected into the photographic process? C'mon, the workflow then and now hasn't changed that much if you think about it. The modern digital photographer has a lot more tools at his disposal is able to do much more with his images in his own home than what an amateur photographer 20 years ago could.
