Due to the wide spread of computers and popularity of Internet, many put their photograph on the Internet today. I believe (not 100% sure) 80% are stored electronically while only 20% made into print. Computer display are 75dpi, u cant change your screen pixel size. The larger the megapixel size will only show a larger picture display on monitor because 75dpi is 75dpi. Ofcos when print, more pixel make larger prints possible without losing resolution.
Some people make digital print using ink jet while ok, it is not as good as lab print from film. It is like 35mm film scan using consumer flat bed and trying to compare it (non photographic optic scan) with a photographic class CCD. You can lab scan film to jpeg and send digital to lab print too but then they are different thing also.
So digital is digital, analog is analog.
Scanning from film can be good if you using drum scanner or scan to PhotoCD but then they are expensive. So, convert film to digital format is fine but it is not as good as pure Digital. Printing digital is quite good but it is different from printing film.
They exist for different purposes. Digital photography is so clean and can be very sharp. Pixel are arrange in repeated pattern, so they are clean looking. Grain in film does not arrange in similar pattern so they look smoother. Very much like a plotter drawing, so precious and clean. Hand scretches can never match the precision but it is why there is life when u scretch with hand.
Use whatever u like and like Jack Dykinga said: "Cameras and lenses are simply tools to place our unique vision on film. Concentrate on equipment and you'll take technically good photographs. Concentrate on seeing the light's magic colors and your images will stir the soul."
I love shooting digital - for the convenience and instant gratification. Actually, also for the home darkroom.
I am also shooting 6x6 film on my dad's 35-years-old Rolleicord TLR. Really high res and detailed. Recently, I have also started on 35mm slides, Velvia colours are really stunning.
I have great respect for film and slides. Digital is selling well and making good money, but there will always be a place for film and slides. It's like computer graphics are doing very well now, but painters using the paintbrush is still able to make good art.
