    Your refrigerator is not totally filled with film of various ages.

    I'm not there yet.

    Hey, come on. You could put them in a closet together so they could keep
    each other company.

    My wife is strictly a film photographer. I probably still shoot more
    film images than digital ones. We read about a year or two ago that as
    long as it is not a particular type of professional film (forget which
    one- not popular in 35mm but fairly popular in 120), MOST films do not
    need to be refrigerated. We stopped refrigerating then, and have seen
    no degradation in the quality of our film stuff.

    However, of course even so, a couple of memory cards still takes less
    volume in our den than a dozen rolls of even 35mm film.

    I started looking at digital early on. I just couldn't justify the cost,
    huge for DSLR. In late 1999 I bought an Olympus C2500 and paid over
    $1500.00. I spent over a year just playing and experimenting with color,
    monitor calibration, working with the lab to see how close we could get
    prints to screen, etc. Stayed with MF film for most items during that time.

    When the Cannon D30 came out I bought one then about 4 months later bought a
    second so I'd have a backup. That was early 2001. In 2001 I used 3 rolls of
    film. None since.

    The first 6 months was hell but we stuck with it. Worked with 2 very good
    friends and a lab that was doing everything in their power to make things
    work. I wouldn't go back to film for anything.
