THe differences in the way they actually show an image makes film have a much better image quality. Someday pixels may match the grain size on film but thats a long way away. THe colors on digi come from the three primary colors, they are arranged close together to give the illusion of each color but they do not actually produce the true color. Thus film wins again, with modern chemicals film has virtually infinite color possibilities, different films are better for different colors and slide film is better than negative film. Too see the real difference in image quality you just have to blow up a picture, sure at 4 X 6 a digi picture looks good but even by the time it is an 8 X 12 you will see how far superior film is...as long as its printed at a good lab. Yes computer modification is good fun but it never will compare to true photographs, its like a cheesy reproduction. Go look at some old Ansel Adams photos, they are amazing and that was far before computers.
It boils down to what you want...if you are going to take pictures of just your friends and stuff like that then digital is probably a better bet for you. If you shoot superfast moving subjects, low light, long exposures, landscapes, macro shots, or anything besides what you do with a point and shoot then you want film.
Most movies that use film are scanned into and Avid, then editted then reprinted onto film...its a lot cheaper than cutting and splicing film.
Conformity, I'll never swallow. The world today full of pain and sorrow. Apathy, I'll never follow.
