    Does anybody get Ovation from their cable network. All this week they have been running several shows on Photogaphy. Most of the Photogs still use film. Several use medium or largeformat. Has been very interesting.

    I've been watching. They show these every couple of months. Really wonderful stuff!

    I gave up TV. Years ago. I put the money that was going to my cable bill toward film and processing instead. I'm an LFer, 5x4 color film for me is now about $2.00 USD / sheet, with processing it's about $5.00/sheet. At these prices it doesn't take too many sheets to equal a cable bill :mad: So... one has to get one's priorities in order. Shouldn't be a big surprise to anyone on APUG that a photographer would choose film over TV though :D

    Just watched three shows tonight. Genius, Claxton, Eve Arnold.
    Really great stuff and as you say, it has been all week.

    Gosh Bruce, I wish I could buy film that cheaply.
