I have an F4s and a special edition Titanium FM2.....but can't seem to get away from giving in to the benefits of digital. Using a D100. Can't bring myself to sell the 35mm bodies for the pittance they would bring on the market.

For stuff like you see on this site, which I do primarily for fun and creative outlet, I shoot film in medium format. I haven't used a 35mm system in probably 15 years. Up 'til now, the technology in 35mm digital bodies has changed so rapidly (every 18 months) that I haven't had the desire to get on the merry-go-round. But I think the cycle is now slowing down and am considering a purchase. We do have a digital point-and-shoot in the family.

As far as what is most popular at this point in time, the digital point-and-shoot is most popular as far as the general public goes. Around here, I'd bet it's a 35mm digital SLR.

Digital cameras are here to stay. However their huge file sizes are diabolical, slow and very inconvenient.

No suprize here, I think we are all getting lazy. I got the Nikon D200 It is a really cool toy. My Mamiya RB 67 and my Nikon N-90S are the only film camera's that escaped the smoke and heat. All my 4x5 are gone, my Nikon F ...gone! All my Polaroids gone my Oldest RB67 smoked over very badly.
The negative of a 4x5 is beautiful and rich in detail. It yeilds photo in the larger sizes which cannot compare to any digital work, but I fear that day is not far off.
I will not stop shooting film but for now I am overcoming a major setback. I have enough 35mm and medium format to keep me going, but I lost 100% of my dark room equipment.

I think if your subscribed to the thread you get all replies after you post, but I have been wrong more times than I would like to admitt to.

If that is the case, then we might not always know who is talking to who. I would rather it be like it was before so I know who is being replied to in the post.

I am going to have to disagree with you on this one. I think if the quote is use it is easier to follow the entire conversation with out having to guess when a reply has been made. I rather like seeing everyone’s opinions on a thread that I have an interest in, it gives me a gauge as to where others stand on an issue.

I chose 35mm film in the poll, since that's what I end up using most, but now that I've got my new lens for my 645, I hope to be using medium format film more often. My 35mm digital I use some, but not as much as the 35mm film.

You just made a valid point though, "if the quote is in use." They are not always in use and the one that appeared to be directed at one other particular person came to me without the quote on it, and misdirected replys were something that happened on GG fairly regular.
