    I could never go back to using 35mm, especially with all the hassle of using chemicals darkroom enlargers, the benefits of using a digital camera are massive especially the image quality of the new digital cameras.

    I find it much easier to use a film camera. Digital cameras are always an chase to upgrade to the new and latest. Film is plain and simple and I donít need a million different accessories so shoot a good picture.

    Just to update my 2016 post, I have to say I sold all my old film gear. Getting on in age and not wanting to leave them for someone else to have to dispose of after I am gone.

    A million accessories? the reality is quite the opposite all you need is a Digital Camera and memory card, as opposed to a reel of film then you need either to invest in a darkroom or send your film away at cost with a very hit and miss quality prints once your print returns, the facts are plain to see film cameras are no longer relevant just walk into any large camera store.

    I agree that film is not something you find easy in any large camera store. I still think digital is way more expensive, you still need a computer and not to mention how much time people spend post processing. I spent 150 bucks on film and chemicals and I have more than enough to shoot for the next few years.
