after browsing some forums on this website my impression is that the digital (SLR or not) cameras are more failure-prone than the film (SLR or not) cameras. The culprit is most likely the electronics. Personally I know of film camera passed down from grandpa to daddy to the son and still working.

The upside of DSLR's is, especially for beginner like me, one can shoot hundreds of (bad) photos in the learning phase without paying and waiting for the photo development and print-outs.
