The last time I shot film was the winter of 2002. I prefer the control that I have when I process and print my work myself. With digital I can do that without the whole chemical/darkroom deal, something I will avoid at all costs.

With digital cameras and all the fabulous software to use with digital photos, I'm not tempted to trying the film. I never had a budget for a color darkroom but a 10 megapixel digital camera and Adobe Software will meet all my photography needs for the near future.

I shoot digital most of the time. I bought a Sony a-100 last year and I use it for Wedings etc. I also have a couple of vintage Minoltas, a Himatic 7-s and a Maxxum 3000i. I sometimes shoot a roll or two of Kodak Proffessional Ultra Color 400 or Kodac Color Neg. 400 just for fun. I would like to try Ektar 100. But then again, I am an old geazzer at 66 yrs old who grew up on film cameras. I also like the fact that I can use my Manolta lenses and my Sony lenses on both my a-100 and my Maxxum 3000i

Like John Caruso in the current Shutterbug article I shoot probably 85% digital, the rest being with X-Pan panoramic. Don't do the regular 35mm so much anymore as 3 cameras for the same scene is a bit much. My wife does the same ratio with regular 35mm. His points are excellent that film makes you slow down and think more about what you're shooting. Not going to stop shooting film as long as they keep making it. Hopefully there will still be places to process it!

I have several film cameras, which were purchased because my son is taking a High School photography class. I have recently re-acquired a Canon A-1, F-1n, a couple of AE-1s, and an AE-1Program, which we have both used and enjoyed. A really good, low-speed, high-resolution color film would be fantastic!

Hoorah! for Kodak! It's refreshing to see Kodak introducing new film in the face of ever increasing pressure to abandon film altogether in the "digital age". I enjoy the challenges of making good photos using film. You generally don't get a second chance with film, so ya better "make the first shot count". I hope the response to this new film will encourage Kodak to continue to see film as a viable alternative to digital photography.

Why would anyone shoot film when you make far superior images with a digital chip. Film is expensive!! I paid a lot for my digital camera, but not a penny for film & processing - and I've taken almost 20K shots with that camera and still going. Does this lead to poor technique? Not for me! I try and perfect new techniques I would never have risked with film. There is immediate feedback to see if new techniques are working as expected. I print my own pictures at far less cost than sending out negatives for prints + I get exactly the print I want. Since buying a digital 5 years ago I have not taken a single film photo in spite of the fact I still have a freezer full of Velvia and a film camera. There's no way I'd go back to film.

I tend to shoot MF& LF film. However I do sometimes shoot 35mm slides, usually with Polaroid Transfers in mind. But since Polaroid has deserted the film market and Fuji doesn't have a transferable emulsion (sorry, the FP-100C doesnt work....Fuji originally said it would, then said it isn't made to do that) this will become a lost pleasure and expression (unless Fuji would like to have a corner on this market and come up with a useable emulsion).

I still prefer traditional black & white film to what I am able to produce digitally at home. I also enjoy using my film cameras as I am able to afford a camera with many more fetures in a film based camera than in a digital SLR. While prices are becoming more reasonable and the home printers are getting better, there are still some times I prefer film.

Although I shoot digital, I grew up with film and I still love the challenges associated with film photography ... I think shooting with film requires knowledge and understanding of the medium far more so than "instant" digital and that, in itself, is a great personal reward. I love my Hasselblad X-Pan ... it's like driving a fine vintage sportscar! Yes, Kodak - Thank You and keep on researching and improving the film!

Competition (necessity) is the mother of invention. Just like APS drove new technology in film making, the digital revolution prompted the need to ratchet up the quality of film. I'm delighted with the development, but worry that this is one of the last gasps of the film industry. Will film go the way of Polaroids? I hope not.

I still own a SRL but digital cameras will keep getting better. As an amateur photographer I don't shoot film anymore because I get everything I want from digital. Besides, doing both will increase the cost.

Wheather your youtube video is about celebrities, your home-made beauty product, or your cat, you would want it to be seen by a wider audience. Some videos go viral purely because of their universally appealing content.
