The Science and Technology Council of Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences published a report "The Digital Dilemma" that compares the costs of preserving a movie made with digital technology versus one made with conventional film.

It has generated quite a stir. I have not read the original report, only summaries, so I cannot comment on any of the details, but the numbers do seem rather high. They might be correct for this instant in time, but when filmmakers actually start paying real money to actually do it, the market will figure out much cheaper solutions.
