Toronto. About 40 years ago I wondered why the old process lingered on long after a new process was available. Now I know. Serious folk invested in the older process so they changed slowly to the new. And the older process has a je ne sais quoi look and feel compared to the new.
When you go to any of our events – fair, sale, or auction – someone always seems to have film available. And today there is even a niche market for polaroid style material of all things!
So go with your feelings and break out that wonderful film camera today and experience the wonder of analogue images. A 36 negative roll of film used to last because shots were costly. Today, I shoot that many digital shots in a few minutes knowing I can delete, sort, crop, select, and adjust after the fact using modern software.
