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.
