I own a camera that uses film, since parents think a digital camera uses up too many batteries.
LOL! Batteries are cheap compared to film. Your choice though - use film, or use batteries. In any case, most digitals use rechargeable batteries.
As has already been said, film is fine for a.net, but you'll need a fairly good scanner, and I mean a dedicated negative/slide scanner and not a flat-bed to have much chance of success.
