Ken has lost the plot
Jan 23, 2009

Ken Rockwell is banging on about the superioty of film again.

Enough already! The only reason film is even under consideration for him is because he figured out he could get cheap high resolution scans off 35mm and medium format slides.

So he is still working off a digital medium, he's just using film as an intermediate step to get it. Prior to scanners, he would still be messing around in a darkroom for hours to produce a single good print.

Maybe for fine landscapes, film is still more detailed than digital, but how many people are shooting detailed landscapes from a tripod? For the large majority of pics digital just saves a lot of work and gives you better results.
