AppleTV (not always) 4K

The idea behind the AppleTV 4K streaming puck is that you see your content in 4K. In the case of photos in the screensaver, that's not what you get. The AppleTV 4K, showing photos from my laptop using "home sharing" (no not iCloud photos):

Shooting film

In this digital age, we still may want to shoot photos on film. But what type of film?

Or why film in the first place?
