The cost of film didn't enter into it, that was passed onto the customer, it took forever to sort them out. But than again, it did with digital.

Re: The appeal of digital photography

There hasn't been much discussion about aesthetics - colour is good, but I'm not too sure about digital B&W without the expense of a Bayerless, eg the M246.

In my mind, B&W film is the gold standard and that sets the benchmark for digital - whether it's quite reached it yet (leaving the M246 out of the equation) is open to debate.

I'd love to see examples of digital B&W claiming to match film, especially from a u43 camera.
