Happened to find this U\Tube video. I found it very entertaining and fun to watch.
I still use my Canon 35mm Film Camera and film (while still available) is cheap.

Interesting observation, Desmond. Reminds of when I saw a 35mm I.B. Tech showing of Leave Her To Heaven last year. A real knock out. The colors and camera work were a treat without the plot line. Well, last week I happen to see a digitally restored showing of LHTH on Turner Classics. What a let down. Not even close to the original screening.

Personally I still use a Canon EOS 650 which gave birth later to the Rebel line of Canon 35mm cameras. It still gives me stunning prints. Also I recently went to the theater locally which is now installing digital projectors and the feature was running at about 3 megapixles stretched to a 40 foot screen. It looked horrible and had little color and finally locked up during presentation. Added the trashcan sound it wasn't worth it and got my money back at the door but was able to bring my date back here for an evening instead of being at the movies.
Digital is good for personal use but professionally, I know the greenies have a problem with it but film has survived for over 100 years for a reason.
