I don't agree. While the majority of film users today may be 'older' people, more and more younger ones are trying it out. While film will eventually die out, so will digital when it's replaced by something better.
Also, 12-inch records are making a comeback (for some of us they never left ) as more people find the sound warmer and less clinical. Don't underestimate the power of nostalgia.
Exactly! There are two groups of people that advertisers would crap themselves to get to. Young hipsters because they set the trends, and the 40-60 crowd because that is where the money is. Both groups are where, I suspect, film use is the strongest.
I am 55 and back in college training for a second career. I spend a lot of time at school. I see the occasional digital body. The digital photography class is full of Rebels and entry level Nikon digitals. Outside of the roaming bands of digital students, most of the cameras I see on campus are film cameras, not SLRs for the most part, but film. I hope this continues.
