Re: Why I shoot digital

If there are people who want to use film, more power to them.

But I tried darkrooms at least three times and found that they just didn't work with me.  Also, I found that when I had enlargments made from Kodachrome slides the Kodak technicians did a marvelous job.   I used Kodacolor film but was rarely happy with it.  Fuji slides handled greens nicely for me, but I still have a bias for Kodachrome.  Yet, the cost of the film and cost of processing, plus wait time were negatives.  Add to this the disappearance of processing by Kodak of Kodachrome, the options became almost nil.  Finally, with the rise of airport security and the need to shield film from xray, etc., made film more impractical.

Once I started using digital in 2002, I saw the advantages for me.  Also, post processing on the computer is more interesting and less complicated than using darkroom chemicals.

I guess, to each his own.
