    I have one too, but it has not been converted. I'd go broke buying film for it if it was.

    That guy Kai is hilarious. But he has a big following so it's excellent news that he's promoting film cameras. On the one hand eBay prices might go up even more, on the other hand more people might be buying film.

    To judge by the particpation on photo sharing sites, people in Asisa (especially Japan) do seem to be a little ahead (of Europe at least) when it comes to shooting film.

    It seems to be a life style choice for some young people in Asia.

    Not a case of GAS at all. Those 2 dudes made not wanting any of those cameras when they had to go to someone special to get film. They made it seems film is a collectible thing now as they introduced the person with 1000 + rolls of film.

    To my understanding is that the shop hold a guinness world record for the amount of film it has or some such thing. That's why they use it for their show. As in B&H or Yodobashi in Japan don't even compare to that store.
