It was possible but keepers rate was certainly lower.

But, isn't that the awesome thing about digital??  Film is free!!!  Back when we use to shoot film it was a commodity.  You paid for the stock, the processing (either lab or chems) and the printing.  I got 2 64GB SD cards for about $70!!!!  That lets me shoot almost 2000 shots!  AND I can delete then and reuse them.  I worked in a lab in 1995 and I was so happy back then because I could black box my film cans and only shoot 10 shots and print.  Now I can shoot (and have, on MANY occasions) 500+ shots in one session and end up with about 10-20 "keepers".  This is the ultimate digital advantage.  Well that, and the whole environment thing
