Here are a few things though -
What if you want to change the ISO on your film.... there are two options - uprate the ISO on the film in which case the whole film roll has to be uprated or take that film roll out and put a higher ISO in, both wastes and ruins pictures. On a Digital you can change the ISO from picture to picture.
Say you **** up the exposure by accident or want to play around with aperture or some other camera setting. Film will cost you money to play around and fiddle with things, digital does not.
A good scanner is very expensive these days going anywhere from 2-6 hundred dollars ranging from decent to very good. Anything less and you start getting grainy scans.
