Is there anything a Digital Camera can never replace in a Film Camera?

A few years ago, people wondered whether they should go film or digital. Most of the reasons to go for film had to do with price, and the equipment you need.

But after a few years, it became clear that for the average person, there was very little reason to buy film cameras instead of digital ones. The only thing I can think of that a digital camera can’t ever replace is that some film cameras don’t need energy.

So aside from electricity to use it, is there any feature in film cameras that can never be replaced by Digital Cameras?

At present, saturation characteristics of film versus digital. Film saturates in a friendly manner. Digital hard clips which causes noticeable color shifts in the saturated region. Who knows, technology may be able to reduce the saturation problems in digital camera in the future.

Film cameras need energy, but you can get by with energy from a spring.
