    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I'm not big on comic strips but that one always has the duck carrying a camera doing something photographic or other to highlight the situation at hand.
    my real name, imagine that.

    I understand that there is a section of a BBC early evening programme tonight devoted to Kodak film. For this to have attracted BBC attention and for it to be worthy of say 10 mins I strongly suspect it will be in the form of an obituary to Kodak film " An end of an era" type of stuff

    I might of course be wrong and I hope so but I doubt it. Unless things are explained by the presenters who need to be properly briefed then it will be easy for U.K Kodak film users to conclude that the film will disappear very quickly and they might as well switch to another make or to a different medium. Not helpful

    I'll let you know

    When the last roll of Kodachrome was produced a national evening news program basically stated "this is the last color film to roll out of anywhere" (paraphrasing). I was furious.

    blah blah blah, another thread devolves into "they will survive", "the world ended when KK was discontinued" etc etc. Go buy some Fuji or Arista or whatever and get out and shoot.

    Never heard of those. The news clearly stated that Kodak was the last film producer and it just quit making film. There's nothing left to shoot.

    Well the BBC item was quite positive if a little lightweight. Certainly no damage done or intended to be done to Kodak film.

    I've already seen a couple of primtime news segment on Kodak which turned this into an outright
    obituary for any kind of film photography and the final triumph of digital. But almost anything on
    primetime new has to be taken with a grain of salt, and the cable "news" channels are even worse.
    Ironically, to get decent US new one has to go to BBC or something like that.
