    I wonder if anyone has come up with some sort of thin-film photovoltaics that are made by multi layer deposits on polyester ??? (ie. Harman could have a nice little earner there).

    Many photo-chemical manufactures are in some way busy with active electrical coatings on Polyester base. Kodak actually aimed at going into production of flexible solar cells.

    Anyone have a TARDIS? You could zip back 10 years or so and get your Kodachrome film processed. Hey, you could even get sheet film and get it processed. And your favorite "deceased" lines of film would still be around.

    I need to correct this typo. Should say: Less than one terawatt is produced by the San Gorgonio Pass wind farms. About 5.5 terawatts are produced throughout the state.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I think the practical applications of a time-machine may be larger than that of a Kodachrome processing machine. What sort of colour-couplers would we need for the tardis though?

    It might be easier to just build a replicator machine ala Star Trek. Then we can order the machine to replicate any film/emulsion we want and the chemicals to process it.

    Yeah, a time machine would be useful. But, we would only need to form a blue color for a TARDIS. One good thing here!

    When this thread reaches 300 posts, will the moderators close it? I really don't think Ilford is interested in making color film. Just a gut feeling, mind you.
