PNG film rolls offer the best quality in the digital market. PNG uses compression, but it doesn't deterioate pixels. Now there are movies that wisely use PNG cinematography, thus allowing for a perfected product. But unfortunately not more use it like it should be used.
Here are some examples of PNG photos:

JPG photography:

Just looking at the second batch, pixel deteriation is evident.

PNG filmrolls are very old fashioned and were replaced for a reason, the overall quality of the image is better. It doesn't matter if there is pixel mix matching, it looks cleaner and more alive. The lights are amplified, you can see the little details in the buildings. (Also, the PNG filmrolls are very hard to transfer over to images because you have to do it the old fashioned way from what i know). Digital film is easier to distribute over the internet, and can be saved and copied in seconds.

The minimum framerate a film looks smooth is 12 to 13 fps (frames per second). Most non-Disney animation is done that way.
25 fps is what is used in television, but there were times when cinema would use up to 50 fps, which was what really made the difference.
The digital age has normalled everything to 25 fps.

Generally for film it would be every 1/24th of a second, hence 24 frames per second, which is the minimum frame rate of video that looks smooth.

Now, just so we're clear, are we talking about literal film, as in like, this? http://hospitalandoutreach.files.wordpress.com...

If so, I might just have a case against you.

Film is not like video though (which actually shoots real time movement, thus causing blurs). Film is just what it literally means, motion pictures -- which implies that photos are taken every (I can't imagine the number) of a second.

I can't say I'm completely sure exactly what this is. Maybe I'm completely missing something, but last time I checked, PNG and JPG are picture files, for still images. Cinematography specifically refers to MOTION picture, also known as movies or videos. I also have no idea what the relevance of the 'digital age' is, considering both PNG and JPG are digital file types. You should probably try to clarify what exactly you are arguing here, because right now you kind of look like you have no idea what you're talking about.

Nice try.
Those jpegs are all night pictures, while the pngs were all taken in daylight.
Of course there's a difference if you take a picture of something in bad light.
