Other than dabbling with the family's entry film SLR and going to the chemist, my first photography experience was a digital SLR, then 2006 it was a 35mm film more seriously, and for a year or so now medium format film. It is nice that I can access these cameras now because they are so affordable but when I go out for photography I don't have this mindset I am going out to shoot film because I want the film look. 98% of the time I am equally happy if they were taken with a film or a digital camera. Then I look at the amount I have spent related to film photography I could have bought a used medium format digital back. It goes without saying, the Epson scanner probably won't out do the MFDB, I do have plans but in these 10yrs I haven't got any film professionally scanned yet. Quite winded statements. Like your view. I guess I have experienced film but at the end of the day it was fun to learn new equipment etc but to me after it's shot, film is processed, I put them online and the very few I print them out. Which is the same as digital. I don't have the privilege of a darkroom to print so everything is thru a scanner (flatbed) thru Adobe and thru my inkjet. With the amount I have spent perhaps maybe I could have got a MFDB preowned unit instead. Unlike the flatbed I could appreciate the resolution.
