My bad. I guess I'm better at thinking than emoting about this.

At Fujifilm, photo films accounted for less than 1 percent of the company's total sales in fiscal 2011, down from 19 percent in fiscal 2000.
The strength of the commitment to film is clarified in this release:

Trimmed line-up and higher costs for customer?
If a company doesn't market their product, of course sales will slump.
I think if their sales volume continues to suffer, it will be nothing to do with lack of demand. It will because the companies will push away their current customers.
You can't just keep trimming your product and charging more to compensate for marketing errors.
That's all fine and great....until we lose Kodak. Then what?

Or maybe an Impossible-like project will come along, we could be part of it, and we'll make and sell some crappy approximation of today's decent film that we'll nevertheless be happy to shoot, hipster like, but better than nothing. Until we die. And who cares beyond that?
