They are also of the opinion that digital is dead.

Or at least lifeless.

Yes they are; and film sales are growing steadily.

Hehe, I was being mischievous. My 19 year old daughter loves using film.

Digital is the future and will only improve. Film has stagnated and only a past!

Re: Age Survey

As someone commented recently on another forum, film is dead only to those who choose not to use it.

Perhaps the motion picture business is behind the times too. They still use it, don't they.

Digital on the other hand won't die for some time, it's far too sterile; no chance of that. But we can't foretell too far ahead, can we, given the uncertainty of the quantum way.

Oddly enough I bought a new vinyl LP record today for the first time in well over thirty years. I commented about this to the assistant who served me. He said 'vinyl is massive now; its coming back in a big way like camera film, especially with the young'.

I hadn't even mentioned photography which made it an even more interesting comment.

I would agree that digital is the future for mainstream use, but I sense that film is filling an increasingly large niche in the market. Ironically this niche has been created by digital photography.

I am not sure I would agree about film stagnating though. Some recent films, such as Kodak Ektar 100 are truly superb, whilst Kodak and Ilford continue to make some very nice B&W emulsions. Thankfully most of the awful emulsions bought by the masses in the pre-digital era have now fallen by the wayside.

If we look back twenty years the cost of photographic hardware meant that most of us were using 35 mm SLR's, severely limiting the image quality achievable. However, the current ready availability of professional medium format film cameras means that even without improvements in film technology amateurs are able to achieve image quality that would have been unthinkable back then.

It could turn out to be an exit poll!
