Is Film on the Way Out?

Butterfly on Daisies

Discussions about the increasing unavailability of
some film types are beginning to fill the Web.

There's a whole Flickr group dedicated to shooting film, though - Flickr Analog, it's called.

There are reasons why film will not die quite yet, not least of which is for wedding photography. The dynamic range possible with film is so much higher than digital that wedding photographs are still typically shot with film. Anything else high-contrast will also be done that way, if you want it to turn out as well as possible.

But ... it costs a fortune to develop, at least here in the UK. So ... I've quit shooting with it.

Thanks for the speedy answer.

The title bar has a link to the group you mention.
A thread I read there today set me thinking and led to writing this post.
