Agfa almost dead

Sigh. Another one bites the dust. Agfa is folding by the end of the year. Contax gone. Kodak lost a Billion dollars this year.

A lot of photographers are still in love with film. Film has a richness that digital still cannot deliver fully. However, becasue of the mass movement of the consumer to digital, giants of the film era are passing away, into memory.

I hope that there will always be a place for film. I hope to be always to shoot film.

hey man

yeah it sure sucks as film slowly trickles away.

I always thought of each film as a tube of paint with its own quality. Everchanging with the camera(brush) ,with individual depth, feel and quirk.

Digital an all-in-one watercolor pencil with the brushes thrown in. Does its job great but its just one tool, different brands same tool.

Guess the paints running out and the paint box is just getting smaller...
