But x-raying (which is done regularly) causing film fogging IS a common knowledge. And I provided at least two sources saying x-raying memory cards having no effect on data.
And I apologize for obviously (
) wrong usage of "if any" instead of "none" and "obviously" vs. "apparently". Not a native speaker, I don't have a better excuse...
On topic, I shoot mostly film and I can come up with just as lousy pictures as with digital. Even more as I can screw it up in developing or scanning. Or inverting the negative. Some screw up are even irreversible with film. I just shoot film because I like it. I like that they come in different flavours, it's like every roll of film comes with it's own "jpg engine" and I don't have to buy a new camera to try it out. I even enjoy developing and scanning that comes with film, it a hobby within a hobby.
But I've seen many many digital shots that I really liked...
