    You hinted at the critical point. Even if there would be a predictable profit the mindset at supreme managements is that film is dying.

    Even a high-rank manager now hailed for his commitment to film (not Simon or Mirko) shared this doomsday view. He then got the incentive and expertise from outside.

    I was told it possibly was a static issue, though I think YOU might have said that Ron haha.

    Bad emulsion gives black spots, static gives black lines that look like lightning bolts.

    For a thread titled Ilford Color Film? I'm mildly surprised that Simon has not yet shown up here to gently slap some sense into us. Being able to tell us "no way, no how, not now, not ever" and then have us all profusely thank him afterward for that response is quite the unique skill he possesses. And uses to great effect. Perhaps he is on holiday?

I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    If I were Simon I'd be doing the same thing that I'd be doing if I were me (which I am).

    Grabbing the popcorn and watching all the speculation...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.
