Great post Ken. Exactly. Kodak is dead set on getting out of the film business and so has totally lost my interest. I rejoined the film shooting world for several reasons. One, I liked the images I was seeing from film shooters and wanted to see what I could do with film. Also, I could see that film's very existence is in trouble and while I am a digital shooter, I wanted to do "my part" to try to keep film going. I want a world where both can exist. So I bought a film camera and started shooting film. I think I have shot 40 rolls or so in the past few months. Not much, but it's 40 more rolls than would have been shot had I not re-joined.
To help keep film going I want to support the companies who wish to remain in the film business. That means Ilford and Fujifilm.
