    Could this kill film for good?

    Here is a link to a new development from Hitachi, the Japanese electronics company. They have developed a glass memory device that is suppose to last a million years. No film can do that nor can any CD. Read about it here...

    Enjoy, Ric.

    I don't think we need two different threads about this Ric. I suggest you kill this one as the other has more replies. Neither one of your threads are in an appropriate forum.

    Show me a computer that can retrieve my Seattle Film Works images off of a MFM hard drive. Luckily, I have the negatives.

    It won't kill analog but it will help the digiatals out a lot.

    I won't scan analog, makes no sense to convert a perfect image to a lesser form of life.
