Not enough good photos

I'm having a bit of a "losing my religion" moment around shooting film. The "hit" rate for taking mostly snapshots with a manual focus rangefinder using 400 ISO film is pretty dismal. Add to that the fact that I don't take that many photos to begin with, and you have a very small set of photos that I like. Like most people, when I have a digital camera, I shoot more frames. And with fast autofocus and usable ISOs to 6400, the number of usable photos is vastly increased. While I like my favorite film photos more than my favorite digital photos, there just aren't enough of them.
