    Glazer's in Seattle has a good approach. They have Holga and similar equipment in its own area - displayed in a manner similar to other specialty equipment and supplies. They also sponsor contests and otherwise promote to that portion of the market in a way that would be likely to draw customers into their store, where there are many other film based options.

    I think people who are interested in Lomography and the like are extremely unlikely to ask users of roll film cameras the classic question "Can you still get film for that?"

    The Large format users - they are on their own .
    Tell me you didn't get a shot of that sign in it's context...

    I'm just not as much of a Rebel as you are Stone - no photograph, I am afraid.

    Sorry for the OT, but since film photographers fashion was mentioned, I think that this is what I prefer:

    Actually it was Apug where I came across the term Hipster. It was only last year that I first heard it being used in Germany.

    I am still not quite sure what it means. I guess I myself am considered a nerd. Another of these terms...


    EDIT: does Hippie come from being hip?

    Sometimes we need to laugh at ourselves... It's not just in the film world.

    As I recall and it was long ago when I still had hair, "hip" came before hippie. I never wanted to be a hippie. They were conformists - with each other. But "hip", yes. Hip=cool, with it, not square, different, away from the maddening crowd, non-conformist, and certainly not like my parents! Now that I'm retired living in a 55+ retired community, I was asked how I like it. I told them it's like hanging out with your grandparents! Definitely not "hip".

    If the lo-fi film craze ends, there will likely be repercussions in the film marketplace.

    Thank you. x1000
