There are a lot of professional photographers who think that film cameras are still better than digital ones. Some would need to use digital ones because of the speed.

For example, when they need to show some pictures for a wedding that will be shown through a video presentation. There are still some pros who think that film cameras are able to capture the essence of their subject very well.

Do remember that professional photographers still prefer using film for their own personal preferences. They like the feeling of developing their own photographs and so much more. For their work, they would rather use digital as this would be more ideal.

Most professional photographers will not bother using film anymore simply because it is time-consuming and it can be a bit hard to develop the photographs properly. A lot of professional photographers have deadlines to follow. If they do are not able to provide the needed photos on time, then it would reflect badly on them and their work ethic. Some professional photographers will use film photography for their own personal use.

They would do things the old-fashioned way as they can have photographs that they will treasure for a long time. Those who are still learning how to do photography may still undergo this type of training so that they will know how films were properly developed in the past.
