    We are coming to the end of a photographic era...but we can all stop this from happening completely! Shoot Kodachrome!--Pull that old film camera out of the closet. It is hungry for some Kodachrome!

    according to yesterday's press reports, kodachrome is now finished....<shrug>

    Hello,

    Film is on the way out?
    There were 23 new films introduced to the market lately. More than at anytime in history.
    Many companies have restructured and new papers, film and special developers are introduced.
    There are awesome new films out there and many seem to be coming from Germany.
    I am following german photographic websites and there is a considerable resurgence of film,
    paper, and specialty developers.
    Rollei is still producing their beautiful Rolleiflex camera. (they have not closed their doors after all) Adox is coming back swinging, after being absent for long time from the photographic market. Many companies are working together to be more efficient.

    Cheers,

    Marcus

    Been reading some other stuff on this guy's blog since I found this thread yesterday. Lots of interesting observations -particularly on lighting etc. - in a Dean Collinsish kind of way.

    I read that article a little while back and quite enjoyed it. It's an excellent read.

    From the article:
    ... and you know you’re either lying or blind if you insist you can get great black and white conversions from digital ...
    Unfortunately you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone in the legion of black-plastic-dslrs-users who understands that

    Mark Twain said "Everyone complains about the weather but no one ever does anything about it." Well ... everyone complains about post-processing, but no one ever does anything about it :rolleyes:

    For me digital impedes creativity because I can see the results immediately. I see the LCD and I loose interest after that. Instant gratification kills it for me.

    As for the creative process, I just walk around with a camera and take pictures of what interests me. I also spend a lot of time on Flickr: there are zillions of film photographers there with tons of good work. Very inspirational for me.

    Very nice read. I wonder if his take is the same 2 years later, or is he actually changed his shooting!! I would like to see his follow up. He did an excellent job of writing.
