hertz: I wish innovation in film came in a form of new emulsions easier for home processing than existing mass volume oriented C-41/RA-4. Or at least in a form of new processors for existing tech.

New film camera? I have 8 already. Nothing appeals in this one really.

All this "new" color films still use the same c41 process developed back in 1972. Consumer color photo paper is in decline. It uses equally old ra-4 process. I believe your are just trolling me here. I will not respond to the same nonsense here anymore.

I don't understand your point. I'm saying there have being zero effort in analog photo process RnD in the last few decades and your counter argument is about _digital_ printing [ sic ].

@absquatulate. Nonsense. Name Ilford color FB paper. Ilford does not produce color paper at all for analog photography. Sure they make paper for inkjet digital printers. The problem here is that people shooting color film don't even understand how it's processed. The fact is it is scanned and digitally printed in a lab. Which diminishes the whole purpose of shooting film in a first place.

B&W is all set. I'm talking about color. All what's left available for home development are few brands of press c-41 (film) kits and few ra-4 (paper) kits which are essentially identical and produced by the same company for which it's a side business. There is even no fiber based color paper available. There has being 0 (zero) development in the field of process/chemistry for analog photography in the last few decades. I tend to believe all research and know-how have being lost by now.

Each cartridge gives 36 exposures and costs $5.
