I have some shots from 2000, my first trip to Europe. I know I could not replicate those on digital. The yellow/gold color inside the Queen's Chapel at the Tower of London.
And the hit that film cameras took! My father in law retired in the 1980s from Bethlehem Steel, as a foreman. He got into landscape photography and shot weddings. He never showed a profit , always plowed the $ back into his equipment, mostly Hassablad . He lived near Gettysburg PA, and got such incredible photos at sunrise with the fog. You thought of the men facing battle, like you were there. He passed away, and by that time digital had surpassed film, and drove down the value of his $100,000 Hassablad collection. His widow did not get much of that $100k back.
4 years ago a professional camera shop owner was talking about only being able to give a customer turning in a $5000 Nikon film camera body $40 for it. Hope he made a lot of money shooting professionally, and did not just have it in the drawer.
