So my advice would be stick to film and an SLR

Digital cameras have a few options that film struggles with. I document my town (aka village with excellent shopping) for 2017 have 2000 pics on-line, some of which are of overhead. The only way to get these shots of moving objects is to point and hope. But with digital I can point and shoot 20 times and select the best one, discard the rest. With film you would struggle to get 4 in and have to re-point the camera each time.

Then there is the notion of saving to the "cloud". It will survive even the "kids' clear out".

And how are you going to lighten, crop, zoom? In a darkroom that you don't have?
