Well, this is an interesting perspective I guess. I don't know at what point digital started outresolving 35mm 50-100ISO film, but that's what I was shooting with my AE-1, T70, and F4s. Maybe it was the fact that I grew up shooting slow film with METAL cameras (none of this light alloy stuff) with real metal lenses, my technique was honed long ago. I can remember hand holding my T70 with ISO64 film at 1/30th to get shots of a Christmas program for the newspaper. That printed half-page and looked great out of the print room.
Shooting video taught me long ago about solid support. I don't do much tripod work except for astrophotography, and my Manfrotto's are decent but not great. My monopods on the other hand are nice. One aluminum Manfrotto and a new carbon fiber Induro. Back in ye olden days I used a Slik.
I guess I just take the technique thing for granted. Or figure that people would work on that until they're good enough without laying blame on the camera. Guess not. Back in the film days we didn't "pixel peep" but we did blow up the images and look at the eyelashes. If we could see discrete eyelashes, we knew we were good to print.
