No thanks, I've made the switch and won't look back.

Yes, I never abandoned film and am glad that Kodak is still developing new products.

Thank you Kodak for not abandoning us who enjoy film shooting more than sitting in front of a computer photoshopping.

Using both, film (Leica R8) and DSLR Pentax K20D) plus MF, film still produces a more "enjoyable" image. Thank you Kodak, Fuji and all the others.

I still do pull out my AE-P to shoot film, but it is more for fun and to work on my skills. My serious shooting is still with my Digital SLR.

I haven't touched a roll of film in 4 years and don't intend to use film again. I think Kodak is wasting resources in developing new film products and should devote their efforts to digital technology.

I'm looking for it to come out in sheets for 4x5 and larger!

I don't think film will ever be totally dead. Some one out there will still want to express themselves in film. Want proof? There are still folks out there using antique techniques such as glass plate, pinhole, and other long gone technologies. And, oh yes, I still own film cameras and have frozen film in the freezer.

I have not exposed a roll of film in several months, but I keep a supply of both print and slide film in the Frig at all times.

I made the switch to digital 3years ago, that was the last time i bought a roll of film. being that i don't have a darkroom, i really don't see the advantage to using film anymore....

Despite having a couple of drawers full of 35mm, medium format and view cameras . . . it's just become too inconvenient to use film.

Paolo Pitacco's picture

It's still worth in the 120 format, it means in the 6x6 cm or 6x9 cm individual exposure size due to the cost of large digital equipment, no more in the 135 format.

Jeremy's picture

Digital is convenient, but film is perfect. I haven't, and don't plan on, making the switch.

John Bressie's picture

I like shooting film for a hard copy and then scanning the negative for a digital image and the control that it brings.

I recently re-wound the partially used roll of film that was in my SLR when I bought my DSLR two years ago. Not a single film image in two years.

Lloyd Pattan's picture

I've made the switch to digital and will stay with it but I still get out the film camera once in a while.

R.  L.  Card's picture

I still own several film SLR's but haven't used for several years. Perhaps I'll break down and give it a try.

Robert Dennis's picture

I love my DSLR but it is cumbersome to carry all the time so I use my Nikon Nuvis 75i in certain situations and am totaly satisfied with the quality of exposures.

Robert Snell's picture

I mainly shoot black and white large format film. While digital is fine it has a long way to go to beat film, in my option. Black and white printing is terrible in digital.

Bob Schroeder's picture

I think its great that Kodak is developing new film. I may not be a customer since I am in 35mm exclusively, but for larger format I would give it a try.

Joel Katz's picture

Digital Photography is a gret new medium , but I do not think is there completely with film type SLR's. I haven't gotten rid of any of my Nikon SLR's , which inludes the N90 S through the Nikon F5 . What I really was quite happy abput was that most my lenses were compatible with the new Nikon digital SLR's and i did hnot have to go out and mortgage my house to get new lenses for my D70, D200 , and D300 .

M.L.  Ehrlich's picture

I still like to work with film and have great film cameras that do the job for me every time and are simpler to use than comparable DSLRs.

William L.  Stonecipher's picture

Even though my professional photography has been all-digital for the past three years, I still prefer to shoot B&W, color negative and color transparency films in three formats for my artistic image making.

Tex's picture

I shoot film for a subject that I want to capture well and doesn't take much experimenting. For sports at 500+ shots, I'll stick to digital.

Tom Buckner's picture

I shoot chromogenic B&W and love it; doubt that I'd use color film regularly, but will give it a try.

David Jones's picture

Although I primarily switched to digital a few years ago I still like the film "look" even when scanning my older slides and negatives whether medium format or 35mm. I definitely will try the new Ektar film.

Keith Trumbo's picture

The conversation of Film vs Digital must also include the Camera. There are some Film Cameras that I've used for 40+ years that I know I'll always get the photograph with. Their dependability have earned my respect. Digital Cameras get the job done but I have no passion or commitment to them.

Vladie's picture

I believe in two lines: Film and Digital will have a very-very long life together. Kodak-many thanks!

Edwin's picture

Film is still my medium of choice.

Bruce Foster's picture

Digital is convenient and challenging at the same time. I have not picked up my film cameras since 2005.

Steve Ferris's picture

Images from film have a look that can only be emulated with digital. It still works for me.

Georghe Drazek's picture

I have gone back to shooting film exclusively after 7 years of digital. Tonalities (especially B/W) are much better and images need less post processing.
