    Spend your time making the problem better, not promoting it.
    LOL

    it is totally out of our hands. there is absolutely nothing we can do to solve or make this problem better



    this post was kind of like the movie "pink flamingos" kind of a sick joke that you can't stop watching.
    i'm just wondering when the eggman will arrive and take babbs out of the playpen ...

    I find this survey callous and offensive, it makes me wonder if the O.P. makes book in which of his friends will be the next one to die.

    Rather than obsess over the Kodak issue with doom and gloom you could spend your time promoting film photography in general and increase your support for the vendors that are still strong.
    Just saying.

    but it would be called "all the films that died !"

    i have shot thousands of sheets and rolls of film in the past few years.
    and promote it pretty much every day. shooting film is what i do for a living ...
    im not obsessing over anything, i think this thread is kind of funny.

    And I don't. So I guess we have negated the issue.

    i am not a happy camper that my favorite films
    and papers aren't available anymore, but i realize
    we live in strange times
    it is important to have a sense of humor

    what else can we do ?

    Im very surprised by the BCN400 result ...It makes up a large percent of my labs processing. Its hugely popular in Australia.

    I see the humor in this as well. OK, maybe I have sort of a sick sense of humor, but honestly, I'm surprised this type of survey hasn't been posted before now.

    I was under the impression that no film is hugely popular in Australia! (or in most other places unfortunately)

    Seriously, I suspect the reason is that most people voting in the poll are processing and printing their own work, frequently in formats larger than 135, and so the BW400CN is not much used or appreciated here.
