Before I got my old EOS 1Ds MkII (16.7 mp),
I was shooting with medium format Hasselblad V series cameras and Zeiss CF lenses for years.
Until I got the Canon 1DsII, I was shooting 6x7 color negative film, Portra 160NC, then scanning.
That cost me $1 per frame, and I was spending at least $5,000 per year on film and development alone for personal projects. Plus a $2,500 medium format scanner, all of the time and hassle of scanning. etc.
So that $8,000 Canon 1DsII, which had depreciation of about $1,500 per year, paid for itself in 3-4 montsh each year, and saved me $3,500 or more per year in film.
Now you can buy the 36MP D800 for $2,650 or less used.
After the 1DsII, I sold all of my film equipment other than 4x5. Now I have also sold the 4x5 equipment.
The strongest "anti-digital film bigot" from those days - who only shot on 4x5 film and hated digital - sold his equipment to get a Canon 5DII a few years ago and never looked back.
There are some people who still like film. I worked with film for 20 years. You could not pay me enough to go back!
