Still shooting Analog, why?

using film is very different both in the shooting and the final result, and whether or not the differences are appealing is a matter of taste. your question might as well be 'why do you like seafood?'.

No, the question might be more like "Why do you prefer analog seafood over digital seafood, when 99.99% of all gourmets can't detect any taste or other sensory differences, analog seafood is so much more expensive per byte, and it's so much harder to find and prepare?"

Adding to that, if you go away on a scenic desert for a year that has AC power, you can carry a year's worth of digital seafood memories in a shirt pocket, but those analog digital memories will take ... Oh, I forgot. You have to process and masticate those analog seafood memories so very very slowly, one byte at a time, so you probably wouldn't need a truck to be able to remember those analog seafood meals.

Yes, you're right. In the end we submit mostly to our preferences. Graham's preferences, even though he probably really loves large film formats, is probably tainted a bit by a loathing not of Fuji digital cameras, but of the Fuji digital shooters that often unfairly insult and taunt him.

No, it's more like, "why do you like wild caught salmon vs farmed salmon?" OR, "why do you like regular spinach vs organic spinach?"

Most of us can't tell the difference. But maybe some can. And for those, it's a little bit more $ and harder to find, but they're willing to pay the difference.

Personally, I think organic stuff is all bogus and a first world problem. Let technology work and feed all the starving people in the rest of the world.

In the music world all those "producers" are all about the old analog synths because they sound soooo phat. Then they record them digitally on their mac and the result is a mp3 ond soundclick. But soooo phat MP3.
