This is one of those questions that require the statement, “It depends …” Professional photographers have to be able to supply photos in both formats. More and more we are requested to supply images that are “Internet ready” or when shooting spot news or sports need to have the ability to send a photo within minutes of shooting it. There are still times when film is the only medium we can use, especially large format shots (4×5 and 8×10 view cameras for instance) used by advertising agencies for national ad campaigns. Specialized photography like IR (infrared) or some scientific areas can usually only be shot economically with a film camera. In the photo art arena, film is still the king. Exposing, developing and printing an archival quality print still require using a film camera.
