I can certainly deal with an increase like the one RHDesign timers have just now had. It is not that I have a lot of money laying around to spend but it is the disappearances of products that makes me really upset. I expect that a roll of film may be over ten dollars a roll in four or five years ... but that does not make me want to move away from film. The thought that there may only be three or four emulsions one day ... now that makes me want to give up on analog sometimes when I really get down in the dumps.
I'm relieved that RHDesign's passion for his products included the planning and execution of passing the torch. It is a marvelously decent thing to do, and ensures at least a few more years of availability. Thank you!
