I heard this from a photo buddy in
China while I was there a few days ago. I was gifted a 10 pack of lucky 100 speed film still in its plastic seal. Unfortunately the Chinese tsa had to open the package up and inspect and rip open a random roll. I was hoping to keep it as a reminder of the days of color film. Also got a 10 pack brick of Chinese labeled Kodak gold 100 that wasn't opened.
Yep, this looks very bad for color film. I have no hope in Kodak surviving. Fujifilm's news is a HUGE shock and now this. I just dont see how color film makes it.
Que? What "Fujifilm's news is a HUGE shock" is being referred to?

“The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see." ~Edward Weston, 1922.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
