Dipa Motwane There's more discipline when shooting on film as stock costs are so high. Digitally, you can go on and on experimenting and the only factor holding you back is time; or the lack of it.

abhishek Film is film. It is magic, the feel of the film is unparalleled. The ambiance it captures, the grain it gives, the perfect light it records. film has no match. But when it comes to budget, digital is king.

Aditya Nair Film has a more nostalgic feel that comes associated with it, it feels more like viewing something that has already taken place and the feel of it is completely different, but with digital cinematography it feels more like it is taking place in real time so we relate to it in a completely different way, more like watching the Six O' Clock news.

RITAMBHARA AGRAWAL I have had the good fortune to work on film as I shot my graduation film in Jamia on the medium and I can safely say that the exhilaration of shooting on film is one of a kind. The fact that you can never be cent percent sure whether the way you think you have shot something is actually the way it will finally appear is quite thrilling and mysterious and nerve wrecking but yes the picture quality can definitely be jacked up to no comparison if a. you know what you are doing; b. there are no constraints on lights, time etc (which is difficult in a university situation) and c. you get to instruct the film developer as per your wish. However digital is of course way more inexpensive and efficient and definitely the reason why anyone can make a film without worrying about their budget too much and thats amazing!

AKARSH Hooda. There is a huge advantage of shooting with digital cameras.If a scene turns out to be mediocre, we can reshoot it and get what we desire. We cannot do the same in the case of films as the cost is too high to reshoot.
