I couldn't do my job without a digital camera. incredibly convenient and technically first class. I can do things with it that I couldn't do 20 years in my wildest dreams (wifi downlink from my tethered helium lifting balloon for one..)

But sometimes I like to get down and salty in the darkroom with my view camera. It's a solid beast from the 192o's of brass and mahogany and a ground glass screen with a head cloth. Great fun and 5"x7" negs that produced a stonking quality image. However it is fun. Using it all day for work assuredly wouldn't be great..humping it around and cutting sheet film in the dark.

There are a couple of quite aggressive threads running Film vs Digital, driven by one particular forum member who appears to have an agenda. I don't know why?

Film and digital are actually complimentary. I simply don't see political correctness in forcing the use / acceptance of one media over another.
