    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    A natural, healthy reaction. Now get that camera you want, shoot some film and join the leagues that have replaced that anger with empowerment, to make a statement both in artistic convention and in numerical stats that you are as committed to using film as the people who are not the executives who make it.

    The narrative of photos made with passion are going to be of far more value than those words born of speculation, in my opinion...

    What about the people who won't get to stage 5, committing analog photography suicide? Can we expect threads along the lines of "right guys, I've decided to give all my gear to somebody who cares..."

    I have been reading in the financial news that next year promises a slowdown. Not good for anybody, including Kodak.
    Shopped in the UK "Poundland" store yesterday (everything for £1, about equal to $1.50). Stocked up on Kodak Colour Neg, £1 per roll, Kodak batteries 10 for £1 (Made in China), and Polaroid Inkjet paper (various sizes, all Made in China....and fine for everyday use).
    And just backed up some work stuff on Kodak DVD's....Made in China.

    Most serious artists of all kinds, amateur or professional, musicians, painters, photographers, writers, are passionate people....which is why they get angry when the "executives" mess up by letting money drive everything. And the executives don't make the film, it's the researchers, workers and support staff.....who are also suffering.

    I have had so many Kodak batteries leak in equipment that I no longer buy them at any price.

    Now worries here. Artists will always find a way. If all else fails, someone can start a company grinding and selling red oxide, so folks can make handprints on cave walls. It's what they taught
    in art school continuously for over thirty thousand years, and it still works today!
