Even the dust and hard water spots that are the bane of clear photographs everywhere look better on film than they do on a digital camera.
I think, at this point, I need to clear about something. I think film is beautiful. There is something powerful and majestic and simply magical what happens when photosensitive chemicals are exposed to light focused through a series of lenses. It’s somehow organic and alive and also firmly rooted in hard science. I do not choose to use film very often, though. The biggest reason is the convenience and expense. Film costs much more than digital. However I am constantly in awe of the technical quality of the digital cameras that are available now. Technically the digital camera now can get a better picture than film ever could. Artistically they are simply two different media, like watercolor and oils.
