    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    maybe any aliens it runs into will have figured out the technology behind the physical existence of a soundwave recorded onto a rotating medium?




    in reply to OP: i thought this forum board stated this is not a place for rumors or speculation?

    Chew on this for a minute:

    Kodak just released two new films, Porta 160 and Porta 400. These films aren't just available in 35 and 120, the two most popular formats, but also in 4x5 and 8x10.

    If Kodak finds it worth their time to make master rolls for 4x5 and 8x10, I don't have any worries that 35 or 120 are going away any time soon.

    The biggest fear for these companies is digital cameras. Those are dropping faster than film is these days, besides the fact there are so many choices there's no profit to be made. People are dumping digital cameras (not SLRs; point and shoots) for SLRs and cameraphones.

    Or, the aliens' music consists of a really energetic sort of hip-hop rapper style, and they'll shred the disc on their turntable... then maybe they'll think we man-apes are pretty cool after all?

    Lomo it not a fad. This movement is 20 years old. And still rapidly growing.
    Because they do an very effective marketing, and do a great job in encouraging people to use film.
    Not like lots of apuggers here, which definitely discourage new users to use film by all their permanent doom and gloom and sky is falling praying.

    Do you want to join a club which is permanently debating it's own closure? Of course not!
    You will go on and join a club with a positive outlook.

    That is what Lomo do: Their slogan is "the future is analogue". They have a positive outlook, that is attractive for young people.
    Lomo know very well that economics is 50% psychology. If people believe in the future of a system, they will buy.
    Good to know Lomo is spreading the F word
    I'm all for film so don't mind if it takes Lomo or Kodak or Fuji to bring it back.

    I've been waiting to buy a Lomo too. I in fact tried to get one with my F80, but for some weird reasons, couldn't.

    Now that they're coming to India, I'm hoping to just walk into a store and get one, as opposed to ordering and paying huge shipping charges and waiting for weeks.

    It's kinda hard to call Lomo a fad when we're still buying essentially the same denim in various shades of blue, even with pre-faded and torn/worn looks

    Cheers,
