I can understand if people don't want to shoot film, but where is all this hatred coming from.

I shot film for 25 years and hated every minute of it, mostly because of everything digital has fixed about it. It's amazing my love for photography survived the film age.

Most of those comments say, they can't wait for film to disappear.
Where would we be without Film? Do you even know where film came from?

Sure...where would we be without horse-drawn transportation or coal-fired locomotives? Yet, I don't want them back for one second. They're gone, and gone for very good reasons - they're slow, inefficient, polluting, and irritating, just like film.

Let me ask you this: Someone hands you a Classic Rangefinder, a Leica, Canon or Nikon, or other film camera from the 50's. Tell me you have no urge to shoot with it, I know I would

I would have an urge to donate it to the Smithsonian.
