    Ok, maybe I am mildly insane. But like I said, I wouldn't buy a ton of it. Three or four rolls a year, a few for special occasions, sure. Several rolls a month? No.

    Been following this thread since it started, don't recall posting on it, though.

    Let's hope that Kodak will fare well through this process and it's possible to keep the whole current range of still film. The most critical to lose are Ektar and Portra. I am a mostly colour film photography and it would be a pity to lose such materials. And what's up with Fuji now? Rather sudden and shocking "news".

    I remember seeing an article linked from APUG about how film cinematography would come to an end in 2013/2014... A couple of days ago I went to the cinema and, well, 3D digital capture, and digital preojection. (Film was Abraham Lincoln, Vampire hunter). Movies look like videogames this way.

    I guess if we hadn't fell into a recession, this would have happened, but in a much "softer" way.

    The previews were terrible. I couldn't imagine sitting through the movie.

    The official Fujifilm announcement is somehow refreshing as it confirms that still film production and archival film production can go on even without the motion picture business.

    That should mean a long-term survival of still film albeit, maybe, at somehow higher prices.

    It won't be the first time that film manufacturers have proclaimed from the rooftops their commitment to manufacturing film, and in the next breath discontinue half it's range of films as Fuji has recently, I'll believe it when I see it.
