Following today's 8 o'clock news from French tv channel 2, there is a significant come back to the 35 mm still pictures among young people. One of them (age 20) explained that with a non digital camera he has to think carefully before pressing the button, Something he doesn't do with digital. A 200 meter square camera shop in central Paris process up to 1.500 films a day. A young lady said she likes the pleasure to wait for the results. The sales of digital still cameras dropped by 33% between 2016 and 2017 so the "historic" makes put classical cameras back in their catalogues at prices from about €19 to €300. Each year, since three years, the sales of still filmstock increases yearly by 5%. Not a word about movie films but interesting to know that after vinyl revival there is a 35 mm still photos one.

Should I dust off my 35mm Leica? [Wink]
My local Jessops say that about a third of their processing is 35mm.

Unfortunately I sold my M3 but I've still got a 111f and a 111g which I love and intend to keep. Maybe I will get back to using them someday. I also have many other fine 35mm cameras which I will probably never use but I just love to have them on view in my display cabinets.

I seldom if ever use a digital camera to shoot anything I want to keep, like family photos. I still love to shoot film and have accomplished one of my bucket list items by doing my own developing starting a few years ago. I find it to be a great hobby and a great deal of fun. Besides 35mm, I shoot 120mm and even 110. It seems kinda crazy shooting and developing 110 film, but for certain pics, I think it is great. I love having real negatives and prints.

I bought a roll of new Kodak Ektachrome slide film for my Canon FTB just before Christmas, so I looking forward to see the results later this year. Its great to be taking slides again. I was speaking to a friend of mine the other day who is a keen 16mm film maker, and it was interesting to hear that it might be better value price wise to shoot 16mm with this new film, than Super 8, that was a surprise...interesting times [Smile]

Re the new Ektachome 100 ... currently it is available only in 35mm and Super 8, with 16mm (single row) slated to follow some time later this year. Big K have also mentioned possible 120 and 4x5 formats.

Agree the Super 8 is waaaay overpriced, although I have read it might become a bit cheaper once production ramps up. We should not hold our collective breath on that one ... as an occasional shooter of cine I will wait for 16mm.
