How many of you are entirely film

How many of you are entirely film except for a "happy snaps" digital point and shoot?

Just curious.

I am. I have shot 11 digital pictures from the beginning of the year of my son Marcus Antonius.
I have Leica X1 that will make it's way to a RFF friend who will put it in some real use

all film here, but I only shoot about 50 rolls per year - usually 2 5-packs of Fuji H and 2-100ft rolls of Tri-X.

Film only, 2 35mm Rangefinders and a 6x6 TLR. Tri-X and Portra. May switch to HP5+ and ... sooner than I'd like to. (HP5+ is a great film, I'm just not used to it.)

Me too.

GRD for vacation snaps only since I find that I don't care much about them when I get home but my wife always bugs me for pictures. Digital is easier for quick processing.

I can take my time with any supplemental film shots.

I am. And enough stock for 10 years at least.

When I run out, I'll get two affordable used M11 bodies with 16bit dynamic range in B+W

I own a small digital P&S and my cell phone, but they almost never get used. I shoot 95% film. Digital doesn't do it for me.

I bet my Indiana Jones hat you'd still be using film besides digital for you'll miss film even with 16bit DR.. Silver halide has its own unique characteristics to be not duplicated by pixels and the developers we use are programmed by chemistry, not by digits.

Not planning to sit by and see film disappear either.

My digital is an Olympus Pen E-P2.
Put an old SB-28 Nikon Flash on it, and Pow! a lean-mean for sale item picture taker.

100% film here, though partly thanks to my Nokia E90's Zeiss lens that gave me a glimpse of what's possible.

I shoot 35mm and 120 film only. I don't own a digital "camera" of any description.

I'm strictly a film shooter, although I did buy my wife a Digital Point and Shoot Camera which she insisted on having when our Grandchildren were born.
Since then (just over two years ago) she got one of the Devil's Playthings, a Blackberry, with a camera built in and so, the P&S sits idle.
When I got a new cell phone it came with an unwanted built-in camera which I've never used.

Ive got a D Lux 4 for family snapshots.

Sold my D2x last month to fund a 4x5 enlarger. I can proudly say I shoot film exclusively.

I am, didn't really use my digital gear at all in 2011, so for 2012 I sold it all off while it still had some value left. Best decision I've ever made.

Somewhere I've got an old canon ixus, but that hasn't been used for years. At work I do sometimes use the nikon d7000, but my personal photos are 100% film.

I will never say never, but so far I have not found a digital I can tolerate (and I can't afford an M9 at this point).

I plan on renting the GXR for a week this Summer to try it out.

As my bank account will attest, I'm solidly in the film camp, with only an aging Fujifilm F40 P&S for quick snaps.

I will soon have to explore at home E6 and C41 processing and scanning because film, development, and scan costs add up quickly.

90% film here. But you just can't beat the convenience of digital sometimes. I use digital for product shots, quick snaps, and recording information (bus timetables etc.).

I just did my first E-6 processing - it was a pain in the ass, but the results look wonderful. I used the Arista kit (a little more than $20, should be good for ten rolls, probably more than that).

95% film.

i still have one good digital compact (canon powershot g11), but dont use it often anymore. i should sell it.
i mainly use it now for quick snaps for posting in the net e.g. of my gear, or for experimenting, e.g. with long exposures.

however it wasnt a conscious decision to go for film. just happend, that i dont like the experience of taking pictures with a digital anymore and the results either.

Glad to hear it! That's very encouraging. I have wanted to try E6 processing at home myself but have heard it's difficult to get it right. I think I'll pick up a kit and give it a whirl. Heck, I can't do any worse than some labs I've used in the past!

I'm about 98 percent film. But my kids always express disappointment when they ask me to see the image on the back of my camera that isn't there.
