    I don't have a digital SLR to swear at, but I do think that the biggest leaps forward in the last thirty years in traditional photography hasn't been in the hardware because they've known how to make good cameras and lenses for a long time, but in the films the modern films are wonderful, and streets ahead of what was available twenty years ago.

    The irony is staggering, is it not? We are probably at the highest point of film technology and quality ever, yet the market for it is near empty, and dwindling more and more with each digi-gizmo that is introduced.

    I was gnikcuF Upset !, that I wasted so many years in "The Digital Daze"
    But, now that I am coming to my senses, I realize that it actually helped.
    Now I can appreciate buying a camera for $1.00 at a thrift shop, and
    buying expired film from APUG members. I would not have considered
    such nonsense ten years ago. I even thought that I would be lost
    without Kodachrome. Once I got over the depression I realized that
    we really have some excellent Film to work with. I am confused by
    Kodak, it seems that there isn't much effort to promote film usage
    to the general population, and The Digital Denizens.
    If I ever see a SoKodak commercial with Trey Songz, or Rihanna
    hopefully I will vomit blood all over my TV, That's SoF'dUp ...

    I actually started out shooting digital SLR's and moved up to 35mm film.

    I have one DSLR and about 6 35mm's, 4 of them are SLRs.

    4x5 Graphic View, made in USA! New project
    RB67 Pro S /50 4.5 / 90 3.8 / 180 4.5 / WLF / prism finder / polaback
    Random 35mm stuff

    "fslr" I do love that. It is a keeper.
    "digi-gizmo" gotta love that one, too.

    I grew up with film. Although I do use digital, I will never give up my film until for some stupid reason it is altogether gone. No, we cannot even think that way.
    Yes, film. I am, and always have been, comfortable with film.
    I have a Nikon N75 fslr (see-it fits), but I love my '80's Olympus p&s 35mm. It has never let me down.
    Ya see - this is why APUG is here!! Like-minded film-ers. thank you.

    Yeah Ron..fire it up!!

    I know...I really believe that a little more effort by Kodak especially would bring some of the masses back into film but they don't even try. Sad.
    All I know is that with digi-crap I have gotten nothing but a tremendous amount of frustration, dumped money out the window and got nothing to show for it.

    fSLR's !
    And, FKodak !!!

    It's a sad situation, when you speak to someone about photography.

    And they ask, " Do They Still Make Film ? "
