Re: Any reason to shoot film nowadays?

After shooting film (and running a B&W and color darkroom / lab) for 40+ years, I can only say my DSLRs give me better quality at less expense and more image control than film ever did. And I'm not polluting by dumping used chemicals down the drain. Nor am I missing shots while changing film rolls after 36 exposures. And getting images from camera to customer can now be a matter of minutes rather than days as in the days of film.
