    Who else shoots both film and digital?

    I do *NOT* want to make this a film versus digital thread, so please let's see if we can be the first forum to keep this discussion civil

    I am probably a bit of an enigma in that while I shoot both, I tend to shoot digital more often, though do prefer actually using my view cameras... I would fall into zone 9.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, which zone do you fall into?

    Category 2 for me. I print very little at all, though, right now since I have no darkroom, scanner, or printer.

    Only film for me. I scan everything for eventual digital prints/ uploading to the web.

    I shoot what tends to be the most convienient and cost effective way to shoot. Professionally I use digital most of the time, but I will use film if going digital is cost prohibitive. I do make a lot of slides for client's artwork. Currently I am getting into large panographics (6x17), and film is still the prefered way to go. My stereo photography is both slides and digital. I'm a 9 'er.

    I made a bit of a guess that by printing digitally, you would be including Lightjet, Chromira, or similar machine printing. Perhaps that is something that could be clearer, or you could just ask who uses inkjet printers. I only use inkjets prints for proofing commercial work.

    Re: Who else shoots both film and digital?

    Greg hit the nail on the head. I think most of us who shoot professionally/commercially as well as doing personal work find that more and more of our commercial work is digital. BTW, inteerestingly I have a reasonable number of commercial assignments where a panoramic shot is the only thing that works, and here I mean true panorama (e.g. swing lens or swing body camera) as opposed to wide field and for that I use a Noblex 150 all the time.

    Good question Gordon -- I meant ANY digital output as opposed to all analog. Even though the Lightjet is technically a silver process, it requires a digital file to make it and that file can be manipulated (dodged and burned) in Photoshop before printing, so I'd consider that digital output.

    All film, only film. I only print using traditional materials on either a Chromira, Lightjet or traditionally (where possible). I only use inkjets for proofs.
