Slightly off subject but reply to last post. I used to buy all of my film and now digital gear at our local camera shop, because I liked the shop and the next nearest one where I could buy pro-film was 80 miles away.

I am sad now they sell "instant studio" light and background kits, and rent $3000 dslr and dslr lenses to the weekend part-time pro wedding, and portrait shooters that don't collect sales tax, but are happy to write everything off on the 1040 c and d forms.

The world is a cut throat mess.
