Not meant as any joke, Tony. It is understandable, because it is and was such
a remarkably good film. If ya got something that really works, why change if
you don't have to?
Sounds like Kodak may be forcing that change. Sad. :-(

Agreed. I have been blessed with great pro labs around Stanford, and was
pretty close to the big Kodak plant right there in the Stanford Industrial
Park. Because of my connection to the University, I was privy to a lot of how
hard they worked on their processes, too.

Fabulous way to go. Most of the advantages of both worlds. If I was as good at
it as Tony, I might not waste so much film. For me, tho, lower resolution in
digital must do for now. Mostly I have to do my cropping in the viewfinder, or
else. With film, the improved resolution lets your Field of View be larger, so
you shoot less fish tails. :-)

Careful, young man, some of us may be even older than you. ;-)
