    Hello from Greenock Scotland

    I have just discovered this site.
    My name is Serge and i am a long time 35 film photographer ; Mainly slide film for my color work and negative film for black and white work. I also shoot on 4x5 inch format with a linhof camera that i bought a decade ago.

    I tried digital photography but i came back to film photography faster than you can say Cat in the Hat.

    I was deeply disappointed when Kodak discontinued Kodachrome film and i am dreading the day when they will stop manufacturing film.

    Is it me or is film photography is more popular in the US than in Europe ?

    Hopefully Digital photography will not be the death of Film photography. "Sad day, very sad day, when there is no more film."

    Greetings from the Muir clan. (only yanks say that right?)

    Digital is incredibly popular here in the US, yes.
    Unfortunately it is conditioning more then a few consumers to accept subpar work.

    I do a lot of event work here in the Nations Capitol and pricing has gotten rough.

    Glad you found apug.
    Unlimited experience here so enjoy yourself.

    Welcome to APUG! I think the numbers of people who do film photography is low in many countries, although I have to say I've seen more film cameras in Europe and Japan than I ever did in Canada. But even here in Japan where digital has mostly taken over you can go to any photo store and still get a (small) variety of film in black and white, slide, negative in both 35mm and 120 formats.

    Hello and a warm welcome to APUG! I don't think film is going to die anytime soon. A lot of us will be dead and buried for a long time
