    How has digital replaced slide projection? I still can't find (or afford) a digital projector that can match the resolution of a 35mm slide.

    I'm not too concerned about Kodak dropping reversal film. I've always preferred Velvia 50 over Ektachrome. Kodachrome was a real loss; I'm not so concerned about Ektachrome.

    How will this affect cine films?

    I use to love shooting slides and projecting them. Just got out of the habit for one reason or another. Never thought the day would come that you may not be able to do it if you want to. Like saying goodbye to an old friend. Sad.

    I was actually talking about "trust" in the sense that Kodak, for a long time now, have been promising to support analog, then, within months, discontinuing products one after the other. That's nothing to do with customers choosing alternatives, analog or digital....it is just hubris, bad management and failure to compete on the part of Kodak. You can't blame the customers.

    But it is another reason for customers to choose other brands with a better "image" of trust and reliability, particularly as the Kodak name disappears from shops and shelves.

    I didn't see any mention of sheet film, but I assume that's gone too. Sux. Even though i scan most color I've always preferred starting with a chrome rather than a neg. I just like editing that way. Hope fuji sticks with it.

    About all I can "trust" is that analog as we know it will likely see some big changes in 2012--most them disruptive. Fuji seems to be moving quickly out of the photo chemistry business and shifting its lab clients to dry systems. That's not exactly music I like to hear.

    From the perspective of the overall world of photography, I'm sorry to see it go, but I don't find it surprising. My own slide shooting started tapering off 30 years ago.

    My most recent attempts at transparencies have run into "local" processing taking two weeks or more, and in some cases, evidence of less than careful handling, and I don't use enough to even consider doing it myself. I do have a few rolls of Provia here yet, but they aren't being consumed very rapidly.

    Sad but not surprised. I didn't shoot a lot of slide film, at least Fuji is around for now.
