In the July August VC, there are some pics of the 2005 VC Conference and trade show. Reps from Kodak, Ilford, Fuji and Polaroid were there to discuss LF film. They all voiced the same opinion, that they want to continue to make LF film, but that "we have to support these products to keep them alive." I read this as "we will make sheet film if you will pay $50 a sheet for it. Otherwise..."
Am I being too cynical, or will it come to that? I don't shoot LF, (someday, I hope), but the demise of LF would just be a tragedy.
