Digital vs film-black and white
2

Hi all - it seems to me film has this edge over digital where film can capture brighter whites and deeper darks vs digital. Now I know with digital there is room for improvement in post, but what is it with film and chemical processing that seems to have an edge over digital with black and white photography?
