Still shooting Analog, why?

I love my xp1 but when you do a bit of research you realise that in some ways digital still hasn't matched film, especially if you shoot B&W. Can you show me a sensor that can be overexposed by 5 stops before it loses detail or alternatively a B&W film that only contains 256 shades of grey?

Those 256 shades of gray are JPEG (8-bit) shades. Haven't you heard of 12-bit, 14-bit and 16-bit RAW files? They'd give you 4,096, 16,384 and 65,536 shades of gray.

.

That's why I've recently started shooting 35mm Ilford FP4 again and loving it.

I hope that your 35mm camera is able to prevent film curl and keep the FP4 really, really flat. It's really needed for high resolution fine grain film.
