Whether digital or film photography is better depends on how you define 

Poorly printed photos from film are not a loss, just as poorly printed 
digital photos are not a gain.

 From my experience, most one-hour labs print dreadful photos. Likewise, 
the prints my friends produce from their digital machines are equally 
as bad.

As for myself, I struggle to print decent black and white photos in the 
wet darkroom. One presentable photo is worth more to me than 20 
mediocre prints.   I value excellent prints whether they are from film 
or digital chips. Enough said.
