However, in a stretch, if Film vanishes, how many of you really want to learn how to make it? Really. For your own use?
Practically no one wants to. Out of the APUG membershop of over 50,000, I find about 50 people interested. What kind of interest is that? I think that the really serious users here number around 500.
True, the thought of making my own film is a really daunting prospect, and I'm not likely to take that up any time soon. I think, thought, that you would find a lot more people interested in other hand-coated processes, some of which negate the need for an intermediary film stage between the subject and the final image.

Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
