We've all heard that Kodak is on the ropes and Ilford is foundering, and that Leica (God forbid) is having difficulties thanks to the digital "revolution." This makes me wonder if film will disappear altogether at some point, although the soothsayers claim that film will be around for "quite a while" or for "the forseeable future." IMO, the fact that people are still using view cameras is a good sign - these so called relics of the past have endured in spite of all the innovations in photography over the decades. If E6 and B&W film disappear, it will truly be a black day for those of us who prefer making images "the old fashioned way." Does anyone out there have any information or thoughts to share on this issue?
