    I certainly wouldn't give it up. Anyway....look at the impossible project....if there's any demand someone will make it.

    I would have a hard time solarizing my work if film went.... but we had that new Hasselblad camera with 80 megabites here the other day for a job, and it looked pretty fine... start saving my pennies now for that one.

    Many creative artists have proven that commercial film or paper for that matter is not needed to make world class images and prints.
    I too have seen Sandy's work and others where commercial film or paper is not needed, in fact its an area beyond my personal solarized work that is of keen interest.

    I just happen to love FP4 film and Ilford Warmtone silver paper and will continue to use it till no longer available. But I certainly would love that new Hasselblad, anyone who really loves photography should have the same feelings. IMO there is a level playing field these days for both digital and film equipment and basically its the person who uses the tools well are those whose work is worth looking at.

    I'm trying to revive my hobby... my love of photography from 30+ years ago... but it's a losing battle.

    I would spend a lot less time doing it that's for sure. I have a hard time believing B&W would ever disappear completely though.

    Digital requires so much computer time, which is not what I want to be doing for fun.

    No, I will not give up photography. I hate editing digital files, that is why I use film (also I am enjoying the darkroom work), but I still use digital cameras, I just shoot BW jpegs. I enjoy both so I will still continue.

    If Fuji, and Kodak, and the others decided to stop making film because it was no longer profitable - and your hoarded stock in the chest freezer ran out.... would you give up photography completely? Or start buying megapixels?
    I think I would re-mortgage the house to have Leitz engineers make me a digital Leica M2. The film version would be put in some holy shrine that I could handle and sit with for moments of contemplation. When the images from the digital version come up on the computer screen monitor I would make sketches of them.

Otherwise, "photo-realistic painting" would be the same art as photography, and it clearly isn't.
    Webster ( http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/photography ) defines photography as: "the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (as film or a CCD chip)". This encompasses lots of different light sensitive media possibilities but DOESN"T encompass 'photo-realistic painting'.
