Well Ricardo, yes, that is one part of the film manufacturer's message .
The other parts are
- please don't hoard; manufacturers can calculate best if you buy on a constant, regular basis
- please buy variety: Different film types and formats; best is to also buy not only the 'mainstream' films, but also the niche and boutique films to keep them alive
- variety of film types is enriching your photographic life: Like most painters don't use only one or two colours in their paintings, film photographers should extend their creative possibilities by using different 'film flavours'
- please be a "film ambassador" and spread the word, getting further (young) photographers interested in the unique characteristics of film.That will help us all as we are all sitting in one boat.

Best regards,
Henning
