Pretty cool video breaking it down.


The most important blog about film photography: this is a window into the film community. Japan Camera Hunter dot com.

Stories of film rediscovery. Guessing as to the demise or rebirth of film. A 20-something saying he just sold all of his digital gear! Woohoo!

I agree with most in that film will become niche. Very niche. Kodak and Fuji may bow out completely as they are too big to bother with a boutique market. Or, they will splinter off little nodules of film divisions that maintain some profit as they wind down their operation. They have to offset previous R&D and production costs as they wind down. 

BTW this is one cool, good looking website. This Japan Camera Hunter. Also seems like people on the site aren't hurting: Leicas galore.

Like a boss! Please keep film around Mr. Komori!

Quentin Tarantino is angry about digital and so am I!! Grrr

Check out this link.

“The fact that most films now are not presented in 35 mm means that the war is lost. Digital projections, that's just television in public. And apparently the whole world is OK with television in public, but what I knew as cinema is dead." QT


Thank you hipsters for keeping film alive. Not being sarcastic or snarky. I am wee bit less worried about film's future...

This is a decent video about film photogs. 

A film about one of the last analog, chemical printing shops in France.

Helmut Newton got away with a lot, cause he is Helmut Newton!! And he hated SF and loved LA! Awesome!

Rumour has it that the is fine publication and generally awesome informational book has omitted all reference to film photography. Yes, you heard me right: the authors Barbara London, John Upton et al., decided to ignore film process....


Boy, I tell you what. That gets me steamed, like a steamed ham! Which is a burger, really. The cover photo is awesome or racist I can't tell.

Anyway I received the 10th addition as a gift and I love I love it I love it.
