    Film shots as collector status

    As film becomes obsolete, are images recorded on various films going to aspire to collector status. For instance kodachrome shots will eventually be as rare as Autochrome.

    Status is not only dependant on the rarity of something but of its contempory spread and status too.

    In most part of the world Autochromes remained a rarity even in their time. Modern colour photographic materials had a quite different spreading, even developed into expandables. I assume this to influence future asessment in case of having become obsolete.

    An other factor is fashion. I mean a change of attitude towards obsolete things that can hardly be reasoned.

    moolah

    I would not put my money on Kodachrome slides just because they are Kodachrome. I'm already invested heavily in Kodak and Polaroid stock.

    Perhaps I should have said as some films become obsolete.

    Probably more likely silver with spike in cost because of restrictions in mining or some new use for it, and film will get recycled for good money like xray films are now.

    How about digital painting?

    There are digital paintings but art stores still canvases and paint. Film won't go obsolete just become more of a fine art medium.

    I do think the desirability of analog prints will grow as they become more rare. There are clients who will pay for a hand-printed, analog portrait. 30 years ago, that was nothing special. Today, there is something to it.
    I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here) when I want to.
