(I agree with what you say about Fuji and Ilford...)
Well I'm glad I'm learning to pour plates then!Quote:
The difference is that a skilled worker, on his own, can make a top quality buggy whip in a back-yard workshop with relatively simple tools and materials. You can't make a 35mm film in that way.
This is true as far as I know. There's a particular store here in Montreal (photography dead zone) selling Leica gear and I asked him one day if he actually sells any of the digital Leica stuff, particularly considering how expensive the latest incarnations of the M lenses are. He told me he honestly sells more than he can deliver and things are backordered, and that the last Leica product he remembers being in such demand was the M4.
Anyhow my point was only that Kodak can indeed still come up with leading-edge ideas.
this is a better example.
we'll all be making lumen prints on film+paper when all that is sold
is 15-23 years old and fogged found in somene's basement and listed
by an unknowing no-nothing friend on ebay showing
all the paper + film fanned out on a tabletop so we can see we are
bidding on real photo paper and real film.
just like they were doing a few years ago when azo died ;)
those will be the days !
