    The end of film? First studio stops distributing celluloid

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Probably not the end of non-motion picture film, but certainly the end of my patronizing any theaters. What's the point? There's a nice TV in my home.

    silent

    When the silent film died they said to lovers of the silent, "the parade has gone by."

    Time to stock up on film, I guess.
    Maybe someone like Simon would be better prepared to answer on what they (industry) see as the market now.

    I agree. I miss cigar burns and all those other warm imperfections.

    I will miss (not) all those authentic scratches, dirt, lousy operator (usually the candy bar boy these days) flexible programs (do you know how long it takes to make up and break down a feature for platter projection?) and projector weave. And I thought I was the inflexible grey beard.

    Just like still photography, it's going to be an art medium. Theaters that have film projectors will be like art galleries Where only people purposefully see out celluloid.

    As a closing gesture before a cosmetic and technological remodel, our local historical opera house showed Lawrence of Arabia in 70mm, the last showing of film in our town. The film was in near-perfect shape and was quite the film spectacle, I was glad I went. I shot Tri-x of the projectionist loading it up.

    There are so many reasons to shoot black and white film, having it be a bit more separate from the MP industry is a really good one, especially in Ilford's case...
