You are looking at one parameter I think, detail, no doubt like most of us used to 100% zoom view, on that particular aspect, unless you are fortunate and skilled enough to use an 8x10 yes I'm looking at you
Again we don't know how much B/W your local lab runs or what the soup they use is, humble me can get this out of 120 Delta 400 80mm f2.8 planar on a 500c/m hand held, my test branch, home developed and scanned on a Epson V850 flatbed which by rights should be rubbish and probably is compared to a pro drum scan.
You have a journey ahead before you, don't jump to conclusions about film on the basis of your first roll.
Back in the film days, when digital was just making it's presence every photographer I knew that had a problem with scans I recommended Nancy Scans. They're not cheap, but the scans come back clean, rich and beautiful. Nancy still personally does every tango scan herself and knows her stuff.http://www.nancyscans.com/2d-3d-scanning
Also it takes time to learn a film. We have a lingerie client that at the time was obsessed with detail and we tested a dozen films. (color). It was funny, that Fuji Provia had the most grainless detail by a long way, but in the end the client liked the look of Kodak epr 64 which had a lot of grain compared to provia, so that's what we shot, so in other words, the look won out on detail.
Film can be magical and makes a great look, but compared to the new batch of glass smooth high rez digital backs, doesn't look that good at a pixel level, but when you view it in a print, it's worth the effort.
8x10 is just tremendous, but other than CB that shoots his fine art work with film and http://www.gregorycrewdsonmovie.com/image-gallery.html
that made his bones on 8x10 fine art film, most people just stick with digital.
We're in talks about shooting a 5 week movie, 4 weeks of pre pro and I keep saying let's shoot on film and everyone gasps, but in movies film if shot right can be much prettier and easier than digital.
I sourced out a very good colorist that grades and conforms high cost movies and commercials. I asked him what cameras he would recommend and he said 1. Film, 2. Arri digital 3. RED digital and there was no number 4. He said it takes him 1/4 the time to grade film over digital because by the time it goes through telecine, 75% of the color is where it's suppose to be. With digital we make it up as we go along, regardless of the luts we devise with digital.
So in my view film is worth it if you have the time and inclination. Also still film cameras are cheap.
