The regular lady who works the film desk at my local camera store was off this weekend. In her place was a 50 something year old guy, who remarked that he went digital about 3 years ago, and would never go back to film. Knowing (guessing) the answer, I asked him if he had been mainly a print or slide film shooter. Of course, he answered print film. I told him I could understand his perspective (but didnt elaborate that my first exerience with a DSLR was similar - I remember thinking "negative film has just become obsolete"....that is, until I realized I was a bit premature in that thought - my initial shots had all been in low contrast, controlled lighting...) Anyways, it got me thinking again. I bet that for most old time print film users, digital was a great boon. No more dust spots, bad scans, time wasted scanning, etc. But Slides, thats another matter altogether. Digital doesnt even come close to the wonderful impact of a projected slide. Nor a slide on a light box for that matter. I dont know, I just dont get the same kick (thrill) out of my digital shots as I do my slides. I guess I'm hopelessly addicted to chromes ;-). Maybe thats why so many old timers who have not tried digital tend to be slide shooters loading Kodachrome, or Provia, or Velvia, etc. If it aint broken, why fix it?
