To me, the digital camera is a tool, the way a power sander or a circular saw is a tool. Great at doing what it is intended to do, but the nature of the tool is such that I don't find projects to do that require the tool; I get out the tool when I have a project that requires it. A film camera is like a cabinet-maker's grade Japanese hand saw or a fine hand-plane. I would invent projects just so I'd have an excuse to use the tool. I don't begrudge the power tool for existing - in fact I'm very happy to have it when I need a tool that does what it does. But when the tool that requires more of me will fit the task, I prefer that tool.
