    What's a fair price, then? EFKE KB25 and KB50 and Ilford PanF+ are selling for $5.49 at BH.

    I +1 the idea of letting people be hipsters... just keep the film around - we don't need to lose 120 film too.
    Btw, my plastic p.o.c isn't so crappy after all. I love some of the shots that I have taken with it!

    I have shot one roll of this film, and the film rebates turned out quite dark. I had a lot of trouble spooling it, because of high friction between the film and the spool. (I don't know whether the film or the spool is to blame.) How can I tell if the film base actually is dark or if the film was fogged? It took me between five and ten minutes to get the film spooled properly and into the tank, and I discovered that after a few minutes in the film-loading closet I could see a very faint light leaking in where the ceiling meets the walls.

    I've just clicked on a few APUIG profiles and checked a few ages. After a quick and dirty calculation I see the average age of a typicall APUG user is 93. Film will die out when no one buys it any more. I don't think the typical APUGer is going to be the best candidate to future proof film long term...

    Personally I think the more trendy, the more 'hip' (whatever it means) to youngsters, the better.

    I'm perfectly fine with film being marketed as 'cool', 'with it', ''sick', 'bad', or whatever other youth fashionable labels that can be stuck on it.

    Just make sure the kiddies buy the stuff. I don't care whether they know how to use it, just as long as they BUY IT.

    They'll get old, cynical, pedantic and start arguing about DOF tables and agitation techniques soon enough....

    Eh??? Speak up!!! Damned youngsters.

    Anyway...
    The NYT published this yesterday. Though they are obviously not a photography publication, their arts reporting is generally good, and they like the lomo-hipster trend. I just want films available for when these 93 year-old hands want to touch some real images.

    Cheers,

    As someone of the "lomography" age, I can definitely see the appeal. I have friends ask me all the time about my film cameras (an RB67 tends to attract attention in a classroom), and kids pine for the film they remember from childhood. I'm glad lomography makes it available (albeit at a premium), because it will keep people producing film for me to use in my "real" cameras.

    Film is awesome, I noticed the photographers that follow me on Facebook, started dusting off their film cameras once I started posting about how much I love it. So keep using it and try different film stock, why not? You might end up with a really amazing group of pictures!

    Yes, I agree. I am experimenting with some cross processing right now and I love it!
    A lot of my friends are now shooting film cause they love what they see me doing, it's a pretty great medium.
