"RE: Film or Digital?"

For me it is less of a relegion issue of film vs digital. Rather, the important thing is to capture the image in our mind as accurately as possible. And if you think about it, that is digital's biggest advantage. The ability to see instantly a preview of the image and to correct any imperfections right now, on the spot is a tremendous tool.

Then there is the issue of longevity of the image itself. Prints and negatives all deteriorate in time. With a digital image you have the ability to reprint the print in all of its orginial glory and color years, even decades later. While I know that you can photo on film and later scan to obtain this capability, why bother?

The biggest change that digital brings to the photographer, IMHO, are that it simply gives you a better tool to work with. The downside, of course, is that digital bodies will never hold their value the way that film bodies did. Once the next generation is out, the price deterioration will be severe.
