Talk about radical.

I know someone else who has done this. For him, there was/is a fascination with the film-based process, but he had not ever done film before. I couldn't relate because I had already gone through it and wasn't any longer interested in it. In fact, I've run into many people that have an interest in film that haven't done it.

And I'm not saying that it's bad or lesser or anything like that. Likewise, there are things I haven't done yet that are often wonder about or even find fascinating. And my interest in film was genuine and lasted for decades. And I still enjoy sheet film. I'm just past pursuing 35mm film and C-41. Right now, I'm making pretty huge assumptions, but I think the questions that come from 35mm (film) users would be different than the sheet film folks.

Definitely worth a consideration. I only shoot film as well, and the medium does not appear to be disappearing anytime soon.

But as we all know the forum has developed (excuse the pun) from a primarily Canon forum to encompas all brands and formats.

It was a very drastic move to be honest but i felt like the digital age was killing my passion. I have been through so many digital devices but i have only had 3 film cameras and to be honest they all do what i want and nothing more, nothing less.

and....

we all convert the film images to digital at some point. We have to share them and while they can be printed, if we was to share them on the internet they become digital

I agree completely and would love a film section.

Hmm.

So in a digital camera, that is an ALL digital camera, it's analog all the way from the subject, through many layers of glass, and an aperture and getting past the shutter before it reaches the focal plane and becomes digital for the first time.

In a film camera, it's analog for all of the same steps plus now including the focal plane. Then some other external (to the camera) magic happens and it's digital.

Then there's the whole world of post-processing, which is (the same) digital steps for both.

One might argue that the digital path vs. the analog path maybe isn't all that much different...?

It may only be different to some who think one is superior to the other. The end result is always (or almost always) an image!

I shot film for over 30 years and honestly have very few fond memories of film. But that's just me, quite a few people here like shooting film and deserve a dedicated film section. So I vote a resounding YES.
