Why did they want to kill film?
Sep 21, 2012

There are only a handful of professional E-6 color labs left in America. I had planned to stock up on film when the end approaches. But, now I hear that Kodak may exit the chemical business and there are only 2 slide mount mfg. left in the world.

Somebody, tell me again why we obsoeleted millions of dollars of equipment used so successfully by fine art photographers. Will medium format outlive 35mm? Will my very wonderful Nikon F5 make a good doorstop?

I hate digital because it is not film. What if the consumer got suckered by the immediate gradification dance?
