    Kodak on facebook

    I'm subscribed to a kodak feed on facebook and today they asked why film matters?

    https://www.facebook.com/kodakprofes...10596028977254

    I've replied. If anyone else is on facebook it might be worth reminding them we are out here and we love our films.

    Done! It has a lot to do with hands and heart, this film thing.

    "If every reply on this post were handwritten, you would see why film matters. You would see that no two people are alike and that the writing would all be different, being handmade. For as long as it has been around and will, film is a mystery that inspires and engages in a way that the world of instant gratification can not. Film is a lesson in both patience and vision refined and it will always be my preferred medium of self expression."

    Which is right above Kodak's reference to my recent blog entry..:-)

    I would add a comment but I do not use FarceBook or any other [anti]social media.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I found most of the responses intellectually empty. Silly emotional defenses rather than thoughtful answers. I shoot both film and digital, and have never felt the kind of transcendence that some of these guys are ascribing to film. Its just another medium, and I'm glad I have the choice. Some shots work better with digital and some with film. To say that one of them is always inferior is simple ignorance. No different than burning a cross while screaming that blacks aren't human. I doubt such sentiments will influence Kodak to keep making film.
