    I don't think anyone would complain if the story had used the phrase "the shrinking world of chemical photography"

    Other things which are "dying": Vinyl records and high end analog audio equipment thanks to MP3s, drawing and painting by hand since the arrival of the digitablet, classic cars are history now that the Volt has arrived, sculpting by hand is no more with the arrival of 3D printers, Home brewing of Beer now that canned beer has arrived, Chefs have gone the way of the dinosaur after frozen dinners introduced, fly fishing has died since factory fish farms have come on the scene. I could go on...

    Friday for me as well. Shot and developed some on the weekend. Printed some today. I'm doing my bit! Ilford mostly, Kodak, Fuji. Would like to see them survive but I know my little purchases are a drop in the bucket.

    I haven't bought film in at least three weeks. But I usually just purchase when I need it.

    Hopefully Kodak film will be around for a while longer. I like their film and chemistry. But I could easily survive on Foma or Ilford.

    Here's a kinda geeky article about NFL Films. It sounds like one of the reasons they use so much film is for the high-speed (slow-motion) shots. It also sounds like they're starting to use more digital stuff too.

    Also, those one-use cameras sold at drug-stores and so on are still pretty popular. There are still a lot of people who have no camera of any kind, and just go get a disposable for birthdays and whatever. Those things probably account for way more film use than we do.

    So you're the one who bought it. Now they indicate that they are out of stock.
