    I suppose your grandfather was an officer, wasn't he? (spike and decoration on the helmet).
    I'm not sure what that is, and I am not sure what level he attained during service, only that he was killed in action, and left a widow and 2 small boys, one was my father, who would be 101 now if he was still with us.

    The greatest advance in photography in the last 100 years is not digital, it's odourless stop bath....

    ... coat motion picture film, still photography film, paper and maybe other materials....
    Do not forget about x-ray film, and remember that unlike consumer film, each x-ray image consumes a square foot or more of film stock. Even though their are many digital processes now in this market, many images are archived and distributed via film printed on laser imagers. Smaller. older offices use the regular x-ray equipment already in place and most exams require at least two sheets of film.

    ... Everyone things that the penny CDs and DVDs are ok, even Hollywood I guess. So, the market keeps moving in that direction....
    IF the movie people actually send out disks, those disks are probably throw aways. When the theatre is done showing them, they are shredded and discarded. My guess is the distribution is, or shortly will be, entirlely digital via satellite or internet with the theatre being charged "per click" each time the file is shown.

    I'm dating a doctor and she says the se of film for x-rays is non existent at any good hospital, they use digital x-rays so that anyone at any time can pull up the x-ray on their screen without having to wait for processing or someone to bring it up from the storage room.

    Just FYI

    Yes, I know. I was part of a group working on that technology at Kodak in the mid-1980s. Kodak's system never really got started and was finally canceled with the circa 1992 Kodak BOD edict of "ye shall make film only." Do not underestimate how much of the technology used for those systems originated in Buildings 82 and 69 at Kodak Park.

    But, frankly, once you get away from the Mayo Clinic size hospitals, there's a lot of film flying around in radiology departments. The big hospital in town here is still all film for x-rays and the other brand new hospital that my kids have spent entirely too much time at (sports injuries) is all x-ray film, too. But these are 100 to 500 bed outfits, not several thousand. And that doesn't count individual offices.

    But, digital is ideal for radiology use because (believe it or not) the images are low resolution and easily compressed.

    To be fair, she's a Doctor at Yale, so yes, bigger hospital...lol

    She said though they may be lower quality they are much easier to zoom in on and see details than on an x-ray in front of a light box. Haha

    I'm sure small doctors offices and hospitals can't afford the super expansive digital machines.

    Not only larger hospitals though, most equipment is trickle down, especially outside the US, here in Ontario, Canada a Hospital like Sick Kids or NYGH has the absolute latest stuff, they can afford the million or so for a new one, their old 3 year old machine gets sent to a Hospital like Owen Sound or Peterborough, to replace an older 10 year old machine, which is sent to a Hospital like Wiarton who are happy to replace their ancient 30 year old machine with a 10 year old one, and it then gets shipped off to an even smaller, remote hospital where they are happy to get a machine, that's not old enough to collect a pension.

    This pattern parallels my last post in a different thread asking for a FREE to $200 working and complete 4x5 to start out with, someone called me crazy and I tried explaining the pass it on method

    Don't you already shoot 4x5? The pass along is for newbies to help them learn and get used to a new format for little investment before they plunge in for better equipment once they've learned, which is what I was proposing.
