I've been on photo.net since 1999 and on this site since 2003. Around 6-7 years ago people were saying on photo.net and photosig and a few other places I barely visit anymore that film would be really hard to get in 3 years and virtually gone within 5. They were very wrong.
Can I get 120 or B&W 35mm at the local druggist anymore? no. Can I get it at anywhere from at least a dozen places around the SF bay area? yes. Can I get it mail order from hundreds of places? Yes.
It's not leaving us any time soon if ever. And I suspect its use has bottomed and might be going up in many circles. Especially since more and more people are realizing that digital sucks. HA!
