Yes, OzJohn, that dichotomy is rather amazing in that digital is providing one of the major 'reasons' for RA4 to survive.
You say a 'good few years' and I interpret that to mean at least five. As uninformed as I am with computer technology I assume that negatives will have to be scanned, then 'converted digitally to positive' (while removing the orange mask) in order to be able to obtain an ink jet print. For this one needs a computer, scanner and color printer. I have none of those so the investment will be necessary, as I now use public computers without much trouble. - David Lyga
