Current scientific consensus suggests negative film currently has higher resolution, image quality, dynamic range and information than digital image capture.

In a scientific study by Eastman Kodak, they found that digital sensors lack the extended dynamic range of film. In particular, they tend to 'blow out' highlights, losing detail in very bright parts of the image. If highlight detail is lost, it is nearly impossible to recapture in post-production. Therefore, film can be underexposed and overexposed, retaining detail and information in the camera negative.

Film and digital imaging systems have different cost emphases. Digital cameras are significantly more expensive to purchase than film equivalents. Film cameras, on the other hand, are quite inexpensive to purchase, especially used equipment. But film and development costs are ongoing. However, in the digital realm, it could be argued that the constant state of technological change will cause a digital user to keep upgrading and buying other equipment once their digital camera becomes quickly obsolete. Other costs of digital photography include specialist batteries, memory cards and long-term data storage. Inkjet printers can make low-quality prints cheaply and easily from digital files, but high-quality printing has high costs regardless of image source.
