Digital photography  has since overwhelmed the market place. There is  
certainly a greater divide between those that shoot digitally and  
those that shoot with film. It's somewhat reminiscent of the old  
divide between the 4x5 crowd and the 35mm/120 grouping.
Then again, in the old days, one could always spot someone a roll of  
film if they ran out. I can't see that happening with flash cards.
