There's little to argue about the technical superiority of digital, but a devoted group of photographers still shot film for various reasons. This interesting video essay talks about five reasons why one photographer still opts for the older technology.
Coming to you from Steve O'Nions, this excellent video follows him as he discusses why he still prefers to shoot film for his landscape work. One thing I particularly appreciated is that O'Nions clearly isn't interested in discussing which medium is better; in fact, he happily admits that digital is technically superior. Rather, he digs into his personal preferences, the creative process, and artistic philosophies and examines how film influences and operates differently under those umbrellas. While I personally rely on digital exclusively for any work I'm being paid for, I still keep a healthy film habit going, and for reasons ranging from nostalgia to process, I actually prefer to shoot with it. I personally find that I think about photography a bit differently when I'm shooting film, not necessarily in a better way, but even so, in a way that still informs the way I approach the digital side. If you've not tried it, I recommend picking up a cheap camera and lens on eBay and giving it a shot!
