For most people, film is obsolete. I remember having a camera as a kid and there was something magical about cameras before technology came along.
As best as I can recall, I didn't really bother with cameras from my college days onward. It wasn't till sometime in my early 40's I got the most primitive digital camera possible, that only took 640x480 pictures, which matched some early computer monitor resolutions. I actually had fun with this camera despite the pretty low quality. Eventually, mobile phones could take pictures even before smartphones.
In 2008, I got an iPhone 3G which had a 2 megapixel camera.
In 2010, I got an iPhone 4 which had a 5-megapixel camera.
In 2012, I got an iPhone 5, which had an 8-megapixel camera. I still own this phone. The metal bands around the edge of this phone made it pretty tough, which allowed it to survive a pretty big accidental drop onto the pavement. This will be relevant below...
In 2014, I got an iPhone 6+ which also has an 8-megapixel camera. When I tried to participate in an Apple battery replacement program, something went wrong with the phone, so they gave me a free replacement which I still have.
Years later I got an iPhone 6S+ on a Black Friday sale. It has a 12-megapixel camera. Because the wi-fi died on in, I bought another one of these on another Black Friday to replace it, which is still my primary phone.
Today I dropped my iPhone 6s+ and the screen cracked, but I managed to get it repaired the same day for $89.
