I thought of buying a Zeiss rangefinder to "go back to film". Then I looked at my 1980's Pentax Super Program and thought, "All I need is a good 50mm lens!" I also have a very good 1990's Rollei film P&S with a sharp Schneider lens.
All these thoughts were coming back because I started reading about the "mystic,nostalgia, and advantages" of shooting with film. But then I thought, "Wait...is it (or was it) really that good shooting with film?" I started remembering slow ISO, same white balance for the whole roll, waiting to see if the slides/prints were OK, etc.
For those who have gone (partially) back to film from digital, what did you like about it? You see any advantage in shooting both digital and film? Or is it just a passing mental derangement that will soon pass?
I loved shooting film. In some ways I still consider film to be superior to digital. Some ways, I said, not all.
But, about 4 years ago I had to make a clean and complete mental break from film for my own reasons, and while I sometimes miss film, overall I do not regret my decision.
