For me it was when Kodak stopped making Panatomic X, and paper/chemicals for stabilization processing become unavailable. I used to shoot several hundred high-resolution industrial photos to be used in technical manuals, and self-process the film and prints overnight to meet deadlines. Color at the time was too unwieldy, although I had a full color lab at home.

When decent and affordable digital cameras came along, I ditched film altogether and never looked back.

For me, B&W digital shots are a very niche area of photography, and do not appeal to me at all.
