    B / W SHD 135 FILM production there.

    COLOR FILM discontinued, there are a small amount of inventory.

    Rattymouse (or anyone who reads Chinese), can you verify that what Google says means B/W will continue?

    Thanks!
    What? You can't read Chinese? That's what comes from allowing your teachers to go on strike.

    Charlie Chaplin said that he thought movies would never talk and never be in color. You cannot command the tide and digital is enjoying ascendancy. But I believe the classic form for a photographic image is a hard copy. I have talked to a firm which duplicates video--world class quality--and the guy in charge said that he deals with 11 different electronic formats and his equipment cannot read them all.

    There is probably still room for film and its magic. There are more horses in the US today than when Henry Ford first drove an automobile on the streets of Detroit--but not everybody owns a horse!

    My eBay seller that I know very well cheerfully emailed that he buys colour Lucky film from downtown Kowloon, Hong Kong — in a shop that also dishes up dim sum [his spelling], spring rolls, won-tons and 8 varieties of rice. Got to love stock diversity...

    Yup, digital video formats is a jungle and can be a real pita, on top of that you can have encapsulated audio formats, and in the end movie+audio is not seldom wrapped up in a bunch of different "container" formats.
