    Very, very true.

    I had irrational friends telling me that 'digital is here! Film will be dead soon!' in 1997! I don't remember seeing any digital camera in 1997, but my sister bought one in 2000. Unfortunately, film greatly outlived a couple of those friends who did not heed my advice to dabble in photography or some stimulating art pursuit instead of mischief. Ultiimately...

    Best word picture of the month winner right there...

    Yes, but remember we are the ones touting film SUPPORT, so if you don't want to support it, at least don't spread the idea of it being dead, because some amateur comes along, and reads that, and never bothers, it helps to keep it going if you keep the dream alive.

    Anyway I'm going to continue to shoot it as long as it's around and enjoy it all the same, because it's just AMAZING stuff.

    What, film in general or E6?

    Truth is, I generally prefer prints and print film, but I've been shooting mostly slides the past couple of years when I shoot color because I DO like to project them and I figure I'd best do it while I can.

    Film in general but particularly E-6 since its next to go probably. I try not to put down films that I don't like that are still in production, like I'll bash EFKE because it was terribly unreliable and no longer around, but I won't talk about Foma even though most of it isn't to my liking. The only one I hate on is Tmax400 and only because I personally can't get the look I want from it, but many like it so I'm more loud about it because I can't figure it out, I'm sure it's great, I just suck at using it LOL.

    But yes E-6 needs our support! Please! If you can, shoot a roll/sheet and show people how beautiful it is! (I actually carry a non-pick image in my wallet to show people the colors of a 120 shot I took of a model, it gets people excited (about film).

    You can't say the same about looking at portra (at least not as much).

    Maybe not but you can about a well printed Ektar. And if you carry a print made from the transparency I doubt it's going to look any better than it could from negative film.

    E6 is good, and nothing really beats the impact of a vivid, detailed image projected large, but I lost a lot of interest in it when analog methods of printing it all went away.

    If true, and if it doesn't suck, that's great news. If it's moderate saturation and contrast it's even better news (but even less likely, I think.)
