Goodbye film????

Last night i went to my local camera store and the move to full digital domination had obviously been completed with not a film camera in the shop......well, OK maybe one.
What's more, the shop's catalogue had completely eradicated any sign of film, dev tanks and photographic paper which i found rather sad.

After purchasing my items the assistant pointed to the film shelf where a few sad lonely looking rolls of Ilford FP4 and HP5 resided. "That's all the film we do now" said the assistant with a hint of menace in his voice, trying to insinuate that soon the film shelf would disappear forever. The Nikon D2H i was carrying must had made him think that i was a diehard digital only snapper.

I just smiled a knowing smile. I use lots of film and like most people i buy it online where i can get it a lot cheaper than the high street. To some digital is the nemesis of film but to me, digital and film are two sides of the same coin. Two different formats to be used when and where necessary.
