    sounds like you live in a different universe than some folks who have responded to this thread
    I get mostly the same nice folks, but I get a ton of "They still make film for that?" even when it is a 35mm. For the 35mm I reply you can still get it at walmart.

    exactly ...

    but a there are people in this thread ( see the conversation before this page )
    that insist someone / people do just the opposite - giving unsolicited business advice, telling them all sorts of stuff
    spoke to them in a condescending way, were not nice/ harsh &c ...
    and when the original person who made the post that started the conversation that was sparked by his post ( a few pages back in the middle of this thread )
    was asked to actually verify if what was claimed to have happened was actually what happened he said he was too busy exposing film ... ( too funny )

    granted i am sure there are some jerks out there who have nothing but negative ( pardon the pun ) things to say about film,
    and using film in this day and age and how film users should get with the program ... but i have never run across any of them.
    as i have said previously, my experience is similar to yours ... people are curious, interested, confused &c because they
    were told film wasn't around, you can't get it processed &c read reports of companies going bankrupt, see no mini labs left,
    even in their favorite drug store, and it has become hard ...

    I think any market expansion that helps film survive is a step in the right direction.
    Not out of step - just suffering from a very rare phobia which is quite well demonstrated in this video starting at 2:40!!

    Thank you, Tony. Now that I know my phobia is officially recognised by Frank Woodley, I feel entirely justified in my rabid paranoia and creeping horror of facial fungus.

    (No offense, gentlemen! Possibly it's just the whole "Pash Rash" thing that puts me off.)
