Film is a wonderful but dated medium. It is restricted by the physical grain of silver halide crystals, the freshness of the developing chemistry, and even the accuracy of thermometers that keep the process within tolerances. The discipline of a 24-frame roll is useful, but there's something to be said for shooting like crazy when the whales are jumping near your boat in Alaska, not worrying about changing cannisters. I deleted a hundred bad whale shots, keeping 12, and will have to cut that down to 3. What a luxury, after husbanding 3 rolls of film for a whole vacation a few decades ago! I gave up lugging around my Mamiya and a ton of glass more than 10 years ago, and am getting better photos than ever. The small sensors have better resolution than ASA 100 film, and the better Canon and Nikon dSLRs (among other brands) are even sharper.
