Film is a pain in the ass. It always has been but when there were no other choices we took what we could get. But film doesn't give you the option to see what your shots look like NOW, doesn't give you any feedback as to whether your exposure is set properly, doesn't let you confirm that focus is correct, nothing. I don't recommend "chimping" (looking at every single shot right after you shoot it), and in fact I recommend keeping any automatic preview setting turned off (so as to save on battery power), but the ability to peek at shots when you want to, instead of waiting days or even weeks for lab turnaround is a powerful ability indeed.
So, unless you're a crazy person, blowing stuff up to billboard size and still demanding detail from three feet away, digital is king.
