    Ah my Bad, the consumer, some can even depreciate masterpieces and believe they are the king/queen of the photographers, this are the type which I hate the most, they talk like if they know everything but they know nothing. Just being manipulated.

    I sometimes wonder who's got the best idea.

    Anyway, 3 120 HP5 await my developing tank, and I'm sure my lifetime masterpiece must on one of the frames this time.....
    Teach your kids to appreciate you and your work and they won't trash it, show them how hard is the process of making a print. If they love you as a father, they won't throw your work and they'll be proud of their father. I say this as a son's experience.
    Let's see if you find a new masterpiece on those rolls...

    Edit: Forgot to comment the video! Here it is:
    I had mixed feelings seeing the blending of that "camera"; I felt satisfaction as a film user, but a bit of sadness to see how it bit the dust, how the efforts spent on the manufacture went nuts.
    If tom tries to blend a linhof or rollei...
    the blender goes nuts

    Perhaps I gave a wrong impression of my kids....they're always interested in my latest efforts, while not photo-hobbyists themselves, and have a strong family interest and loyalty. In particular, my daughter is a very competent watercolorist, so has an appreciation of the effort which goes into creating good pictures of any kind.

    My point was that we all have different tastes in art and design, particularly from one generation to another, and I wouldn't expect my kids to necessarily like my pictures or to put them on the wall when I'm not around just because their father took them. Any value and purpose which they have is the pleasure and interest which I have in making them, and that is of this time....if others like them some time in the future, so be it.

    I have many prints and slides taken by my own late father, some which were accepted for exhibition, and I wouldn't throw them out. But the most valuable ones to me are not his 20x16 landscapes, but the "family snaps" from the 1880's to the 1950's. These, and those of their own childhood, are the ones which my own kids would want me to rescue from the proverbial fire.
