    Wiki Author Disses Film Cameras...

    I suspect this uninformed, editorialism goes on all the time on the Wiki...

    From the "Cosina" Wiki with reference to 35mm cameras:

    As all these cameras use the defunct film technology, most of these will be bought as collector's items rather than for actual use

    I suggest you edit the article and remove that line. I doubt there is anyway to prove that the cameras will merely be collected as opposed to used.

    It would be difficult to name a camera company more dedicated to film than Cosina. The Voigtlander line seems to be a labor of love for Mr. Hirofumi.

    They said Most not all, I'd say thats a fair assement.I don't need both black and chrome versions of 12 different models, some are just to look at.But I disagree with the term "defunct", film is still alive and being used every day.

    I wouldn't actually look at wiki as a great source of information. Look at how extensive it's article is for imaginary cartoon characters like say Optimus Prime?

    I'm a recovering wikipedia editor. I used to write quite a few articles there and maintain many more (all around skateboarding).

    It was hell and I now avoid wikipedia at all costs so I don't get dragged back in. Most of my time was spent reverting vandalism (which interestingly always seemed to come from US schools) and battling other users who resented anyone trying to improve 'their' articles.

    This sums up the wikipedia editing experience perfectly:

    I'm not even sure that I agree with the "most of these will be bought as collector's items rather than for actual use" part (and I most certainly don't agree with the "defunct" part).
    Whenever I buy another camera I always do it with the intent of using it and not as a collectible. Maybe I don't use it very much but that doesn't mean that it is part of a collection.

    How about the rest of you?
    Don't you buy cameras with the intention of using them rather than something for your collection?
