Or you would learn to deal with the limitations. The film speed is only an issue if you are trying to shoot in the most challenging lighting condition or trying to achieve a very, very shallow DOF during a bright sunny day. Generally, you can shoot everything with your ASA400 speed film. Your keeper ratios? I see why you may need to shoot and spray shooting sports but things like landscape and street photography? I doubt it.
I can see you never shot photojournalism on film. I dont want to sound like a cranky old guy but for you to dabble in film is good, but dont try to tell me how it is. I shot film for 25 years, I know its strengths and limitations quite well. Yes you learn how to deal with the limitations, but it was far different when those limitations are forced on a working pro than some guy dabbling in a toy project. Digital has offered up all sorts of improvements in photojournalism, wedding, and event photography because you can dial in high ISO in one room, or switch white balance on a whim.
