as far as I know the resolution on digital at the moment is nowhere near as high as 35mm film . so how is that progress ?
Film isnt measured the same, so its stupid to compare. Its also stupid to think "more pixels" means its better. Thats like saying a painting with more paint is better.
Besides, film has a limit imposed by the medium, whilst digital can in theory continue up forever.
Also, you have to consider the point when human eyes can no longer distinguish the difference between the two.
Also, people seem to think a film like "No Country for Old Men" is good because it used film, as though the actors, the story, the director and so on had nothing really to do with the film.
Its not the medium, its the product. This is a REALLY simple concept to understand you know.
