    I'd bet on it. And right now it would still be the absolutely correct answer.

    OK, let's add to the list of predictions I make that nobody will listen to. It will be the absolutely correct answer for as long as HARMAN exists.

    Thanks for all the feedback. Just wish it would have come in on a timely fashion.
    Check your settings, you may have your notifications set to "once a day" or "once a week" instead of each post.

    Anyway you should take the time to read through, there's good info here, why create a thread you won't read?lol

    You may very well be correct, Sal. Or you may not.

    One of the most difficult things in life I've found to be the case is the attempt to get people to set aside their comfort, fear and inertia in order to try peering into the future. It's an enormously difficult and stressful task for most individuals. And the reasons behind that difficulty have always escaped me, as it's something that I've found just comes as second nature.

    The collective comfort that comes from actively ignoring the past. And the fear that a person has that they might be seen as wrong, especially in public. And the inertia that comes from repeating the exact same thought processes over and over. And any other personal agendas which may be at work. All of these play a part, I'm sure.

    But that stubborn refusal to even consider any possibilities beyond the immediate present just baffles me no end. Just asking someone to take a peek into the crystal ball is like pulling teeth. It's as if time for these individuals has frozen in the current moment, now and forever.

    Which, I suppose, also helps explain your difficulties with getting people to listen to your predictions...

    Well, I happen to agree with Sal, and it fact, that is exactly what I have been saying. The only difference is that I give the technical reasons behind my "prediction".

    You may very well be correct, Ron. Or you may not.

    When it comes to times and circumstances changing in the future, possibilities are like that...

    I think our questions about right-sized production of color film (c41 and e6) have just been addressed today over in the Ferrania thread.
    “You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt

    Yes they will be making a new E-6 (based on an old one I'm understanding). Also Adox will be making one of their films available in 70mm, 127, 110, etc etc etc basically all roll films and even special orders of even ONE ROLL in their new small scale facility.

    So there's hope for scaled down places to make film forever... like the buggy whip... haha how many times has that guy talked about the buggy whip ... haha but it is true, on a small scale it would be possible to keep film around forever. I hope so...

    Be aware that this all is a statement of intent. As hinted at repeatedly here at Apug the market at least for middle of the road films is marked by the price. And with C-41 films still available for about a Dollar from high productive competitors, how could a new enterprise described as low volume compete with them?

    by offering sizes not available elsewhere, getting them hooked on that film, and then because we often use multiple cameras, easier to standardize on a look we are familiar with so they buy a bunch of different sizes for the same film type... or at least own the market in that format since no one else is making it.

    That's my idea anyway.
