Great one Raid. For me, I like the look of digital and the fact that I can do everything in my apartment (without a darkroom, sink, or enlarger) to make books, prints, etc. I`m also primarily a color digital works well for me. I used film when there wasn`t an alternative and when digital first came out, it wasn`t good enough. I didn`t photograph for 8 years or so and then tried film and digital together when I got back into it. I think I soon discovered in 2008 that I just preferred digital and now I rarely ever use a roll of film. My brother just gave me an Olympus XA2 though... so maybe I have to play again.
