Riiight.

Ignore him. He's been going gonzo making the most absurd posts, trying to get a rise out of people. Trying to prove he's a true "looper".

so that leaves only only one reason ppl would use film now days, to have fun.

That's about right. Although some professionals are marketing film as a retro option and charging a premium for it, so that's another potential reason for some.

They have to charge a premium for it. Running costs are much higher, and rising constantly. Apparently, Fuji just announced a 30% hike in film, paper, and chemistry.
