    I know that digital will blow out highlights just as well as slide film. I still think negative film has the edge over digital in dynamic range. But in practice the low light capabilities of digital is quite amazing.

    Still here's the rub. A kid can for less than the cost of an Apple phone can buy a 4x5 camera, enlarger every bit of darkroom sundries. And, if he or she has the talent, can produce silver gelatin prints, on fiber base paper, that are worthy of the finest museums.

    I have just decided to not discuss this with my friends and when they talk about some new bs about digital being better than anything else, I will just nod my head up and down in agreement like an obedient Pavlovian dog.

    I'd change friends. Friends should be supportive. Used to have a friend who shot film then switched to digital and became anti film. Got tired of him calling me a loser on line because I still use film. Why would I want to hang around with someone like that?

    Correct! The same mindfulness also requires us to not be film snobs that speak poorly of those practicing photography with digital.

    I figure it isn't worth giving up friends. They have their viewpoints and I won't change that. So as lo g as they are haply with their choices good for them. Now if they start insulting me, it's a different story.
