    You'll need to expand on this. We need to understand which whack-job argument you're putting forward. Muslim Brotherhood? Birther? Higher ed myths? His 39-digit social security number? Obama adopted?

    At the risk of returning this thread to its topic ....

    This product could affect the market for film intended to be used to archive images and data.

    You are correct I'm not getting into a political discussion with libtards.

    Take the name calling and political discussion to the soapbox. No further comment needed on this from anyone. Thanks.
    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    Certainly so, but film intended to be used to archive images and data is overall, I imagine, a small part of the film production so in itself this new technology would not kill film for good, although it might kill that particular kind of film one day.

    I don't believe it will kill film. People shoot the medium for a lot of different reasons besides having images around for a million years. I imagine very few people shoot digital thinking that way either.

    I also think the work of famous photographers, like Bresson and Adams, will be around as long as they have significance.

    Just my 2 cents,

    TBH the best way to keep film alive is to:

    Keep buying it

    Get others interested

    If you have children/nephews/nieces/young cousins then at least show them film and explain how it works. Don't be pushy - that'll kill their interest in seconds. Just try to provoke their natural curiosity and see where it takes them. Shoot a roll of film at a family gathering and then either let them get involved with processing it or just take the negatives with you next time you meet.

    Enjoy, Ric.
    I've thought Platinum/Palladium rock prints would be interesting. Kind of an upgrade.

    I threw away my VHS tapes and VCR a couple of weeks ago. Reminds me, I still have some floppy disks and DAT tapes that I also should throw away, as I no longer have any means to read them.

    As all others before it , this storage invention will be outdated long before its media become unreadable.
