agree the compromise is there

She wants to learng both, I do BW routinely and built a darkroom in the attic but for her I have ordered a C41 kit for the first time in over a decade

I guess we'll just scan the negatives and print digitally or share digitally :)

Last sunday.

My daughter (16) asked me to teach her how to use film cameras, so she and I walked around town with Pentax Spotmatics.
She enjoyed the experience, expecially the "tactile" part of film photography and after the 1st roll she asked me to teach her how to develop

It was a complicated bargain - all the chemistry that goes into film manufacture and processing vs. all the chemistry that goes into digital camera and computer manufacture.  Processing color film became a huge liability.

And at this point, with the advent of point and shoot cameras in every phone, most images never see printing at all.

I hope you took her out with b&w film, Pablo.
