    With good reason. I wasn't poor until I got into this "hobby".

    Don't I know the feeling!

    I do have some film (about 100 rolls, plus sheet film and quickloads) in the fridge/freezer, but it's not hoarding...I don't live in a place where the films I like to shoot are readily available, and it's much cheaper to buy online (and internationally) which means buying in bulk in a variety of formats (35/120, colour/B&W) to make the best use of the shipping prices. That being said, I did buy some films (like HIE) and papers (for lith) once I found out that they had been discontinued (which usually happens right after I discover them).

    I hope that photography doesn't become like high-end audio equipment. I want to be able to afford to keep doing it.

    Even though I stockpile film, I still buy film as I use it up. I try to use a FIFO system--as I pull older stock from the fridge, fresher stuff goes in, so that there's always a certain amount in there, and it doesn't get too old. I also don't see it as affecting the film market much: the film is out there, either I buy it, or someone else buys it, or no one buys it. If 1 or 2, eventually it will get used, if 3, then production will end that much sooner.

    I have seen a lot of classic cars around where I live.

    While the bamboo reed needle on a 78 may be the metaphorical equivalent to pin-hole photography, no one is likely to consider that high-end audio.

    I think that b&w photography will always be around, in some capacity. And I mean always. Color emulsions are what we should be worried about and I know we are (worried).

    If we have B&W emulsions and filters then worse comes to worst we can still do color the hard way, three exposures...

    Finding film has never been a problem here . Problem was to find a reliable camera . I gave hell of money to Rollei 35 S because of sonnar lens and than someone sent me Nikon with a Sonnar lens and all cameras give me 10 good picture per 36 and others have burned. I am an old fashion photographer and preferred Leicas until today and I really scare to give hell of money to a Leica via keh or others and get my hand burn. But this summer will be the last chance for analog cameras , I will buy a bgn R4 and a telyt from keh and if they dont work , I will never be afford to these 30 years old junks again.
