|When should one use film, and when should one use digital?
extreme weather affects digital
Digital for photojournalism and news imagery, purely as the images must be with the agency/paper within a couple of hours of the event happening. I mostly use film for personal and longer term documentary projects. Both have their charm and unique fall backs.
Film is such a tricky media, I have used it many times and I can say that it's hard to use it without really, really knowing what you're doing. To use film you have to be completely sure about the shutter speed, aperture etc to make the perfect shot. With digital it's so much easier, yet still just as hard to manage a perfect shot. With digital, you can also edit your exposure and so forth in photoshop. However, with film it's either a win or lose shot. Plus, developing the image is quite hard, considering that you can never time it just perfect for the perfect exposure, it's very tricky.
The advantages of film over digital (DR, color rendition, resolution) have been reduced in the former year.
Film is already a nostalgia.
I think we should use film when the situation, and object is constant, and we will not make a lot of mistake in the taking picture moment, and we need good classic result so we should use film.
but for digital its more versatile in any kind of situation, that best quality and classic things isn't necessary, and its easier anyway.
I shot my last sheet of film in 1997. Film is dead to me!
Film is for true photographers that want the real feel of tradition prints and the different processes. I still have medium format Panoramic cameras that give you such a real quality. Digital has taken over as the standard for most commercial and many artistic uses.
I always go digital as it is so much easier, faster, and more economical.
One should use film when it was the way to take photographs and digital now that it is the way to take pictures. Really, it's all the same to me. I seem to spend as much time working in front of a monitor as I did in a darkroom in the glow of orange-red light.
Whenever you want/feel like.
It really depends on the subject and situation. Digital technology is becoming so advanced that I'm afraid someday we may not see film anymore.
They are all the same
After moving from 35mm film cameras, I've gone all digital and wouldn't look back. Maybe that's another sign of being a left brained person.
