    Indeed. But well, they are using film. That's money for the manufacturers, while it's not expired, of course.
    It is a bit annoying when you want "Normal" examples of a film. I wanted to see Fuji sensia pictures and in 6 pages; I found less than 10 non X-pro and such stuff.

    For film examples, the best groups I've found are the "I shoot ____ film". There's one for Kodak, Ilford, and Fuji. Probably others too. Sure, you have to look at a bunch of photos to average out the extremes and get a sense of what they might be like, but it seems to work.

    Scanner variability has a lot to do with it too.

    It's revenue for the manufacturers, regardless — just revenue realized during the past, that's all. Left-overs from the past — in-date, short-date, or expired — are a consequence of over-producing as much as a dependency upon unfocussed, but traditional distribution methodologies.

    lofi and cross-processing seems to be a big thing on flickr due to a bunch of people using lomos, but there are plenty of fairly straight shots if you look carefully. Hell, look me up; I have a bunch of Velvia, Provia, Acros, Pan-F, SFX200, etc posted.

    At least flickr doesn't auto-adjust your images - if you're ever foolish enough to post an image to facebook, their software will auto-level your photo and destroy it.

    I tried that once, wondered what the hell was going on. Luckily there are applications like Flickr Tab that get around the problem.

    In the past I've tried to use Flickr as a way of scouting out some locations that I know are well photographed. I think that the range of standards found from such searches just go to show that technology is both a blessing and a curse.
