    I wonder if Jobo realizes that their digital products don't distinguish themselves in the market - one external DVD is pretty much like the next.

    If your income were shrinking by, say, 20-30% each year, with no end in sight, wouldn't you find another way to make a living, before you starve?

    It's funny, I was just thinking today about all the little gadgets and gizmos we use in darkrooms, like measuring graduates, film clips, glassine envelopes, proof printers, tongs, trays... with the next generation of photographers almost certain to be 95% digital, companies like Paterson, Falcon and Jobo will not be around (in their present form) much longer.

    Because most of the darkroom supplies we buy (other than chemicals) last for years and years, darkroom equipment mfrs have always depended for their sales on new people coming into the field. How many developing trays do you plan to buy next year? Zero, right?

    There will (hopefully) always be enough of us to ensure that film, paper and chemicals will be available, but what about all those little hardware items that we all rely upon so heavily in the darkroom? Sad, really sad...

    I don't buy 'photography specific' items if there is something else that will do the job just as well. Like, for example, film clips, plastic clothes pegs work fine for me.

    I'm not saying they should sell digital, I just don't see the need to change your name to "digital this" or "Digital that" as if not having digital in your name means you don't sell digital.
