Poll: Film Photography in Archaeology?

I’m trying to get a better handle on just how pervasive digital photography is in archaeology.  I know that this is going to be a horribly skewed sample, but I’d still like to hear from as many people as possible.

Please forward a link to this blog post or directly to the poll:


Thank you!

  1. I dislike the fact that archaeologists are doing everything digitally these days. In the long run, celluloid is more archivally stable than any digital media and will cost less to curate than constantly having to upgrade your collections to accommodate the newest formatting standards. Blah!
