I'm pretty much on the side of the crowd here in this thread stating that you can emulate basically anything analog with digital photography with the right equipment, software and knowlege.
Knowlege being the problem here. As with anything, going digital requires a discrete intermediate step of understanding the basic principles of digital and neccessary abstractions involved. Precisely this is the deal-breaker.
Photographers generally don't care about color-depth data, sensor build, data throughput, the pitfalls of digital editing and all that.
Yes, you can do just about anything with digital tech, yet one of the best animation films of 2016 (Kubo) is made with super-old-school stop-motion. Force the crew to do the same enirely in a 3D pipeline and all the artists would rather kill themselves than do it.
I see this in my work everyday. I'm the sole IT expert in a crew of ~30 communicators and marketeers. We do our customer list in Excel because the marketing boss doesn't want to waste 5 minutes wrapping his head around the dead and abstact concept of a CRM system and an accompaning pipeline. It's basically the very same problem.
Film is real, digital is abstract and disconnected from this world. There may be a Hasselblad Digicam and a Mac Pro and Adobe PS luxury pack that does all this and more and better, but the sheer massive amount of digital pipeline and IT scaffolding such a technology needs makes a creatives brain hurt.
Thats the reason people use feature phones, moleskines and get all warm and fuzzy inside when they see vinyl rotating on the turntable. It's way less a pain in the but and far more real and sensual. I felt the same dancing Tango to a mechanical Gramophone a few months back. And it's the reason I'm cutting short on my computer time and just now bought what is basically a CLI-centric Linux Netbook rather than the new MB Pro.
More and more I come to the conclusion that I can't really blame them. Not everybody is an obsessive Nerd like we are and can wrap is head around digital as we can, because we do nothing else.
My 2 cents.
