    How did you know Bret and I have a son?
    I have always been supportive of both mediums. Most of my SI
    submissions were done by film. I have a few film cameras as well as 2
    DSLRs

    I have used Ektar 25 in the past.
    I rarely shoot film anymore, especially negative film.
    Most everybody else has migrated to digital as well.
    So what's to discuss?

    Don't feel bad, Jim - I feel the same - I see lots of complaints about
    how badly film folk are treated, but where are the examples?

    Sure, there are occasional silly discussions and arguments about
    relative merits of each, but both sides exaggerate and both sides get
    insulting. Lately there have been more posts complaining about
    film-is-dead posts, than the actual posts.

    And then it is rather notable that the film folk are very quiet - do you
    solve a problem by shutting up and/or running away? If there are film
    topics you want to see discussed, *raise them yourself*.

    Then we'll see an increase in signal to noise, and you can get to point
    at all the antagonists.. and then killfile them.


    Job done. Group improved. And now would be a good time, as I see many
    old-timers seem to be lurking and occasionally posting.

    Here: http://z.about.com/d/firstaid/1/0/i/5/-/-/Ben_Kay.jpg This man
    dared to use an Argus C ("The Brick") rangefinder 35mm film camera and
    was beaten about the face with a Praktica Domiplan lens. The
    photographer who used the lens as a sap said it was the only thing the
    Domiplan was good for.

    (O:

    Ahah! So this treatise was in fact true..

    How to Make money with Your Camera
    (author unknown - possibly Bob Atkins..?)

    1. Sell it. Best camera for this type of work is a Leica, preferably an
    unused "special edition."

    2. Pawn it. Not as good as (1), but still not bad. Again, Leicas are
    the best kind of camera for this work.

    3. Lurk around in a dark alley, and when someone comes by, hit them
    over the head with your camera and steal their wallet. Here the
    superiority of medium format work really shines. Mamiya RB67s or Pentax
    6x7s are very good. If you have to use 35mm, rumor has it that Nikons
    work better than Canons. Under really difficult conditions, use a
    sturdy tripod (always a good idea).

    4. Sell pictures to your friends and colleagues. The best way here is
    to follow them around in the evening and weekends. If you are lucky
    you'll spot them doing something like going into a massage parlor or
    being stopped by the police for DWI. Pictures of these events usually
    sell for quite a bit more than the usual portrait work. 35mm is the
    preferred format, and a long-range zoom is the lens of choice.

    5. Sports Photography. Follow a prominent sports figure around all day,
    every day, and take close-up pictures with a wide angle lens and flash
    as often as possible. With luck and persistence you will be the victim
    of an assault, for which you can sue. Even an out of court settlement
    can be quite profitable. I'd suggest an inexpensive P&S camera for this
    type of work.

    6. There is no 6, 7, 8 or 9. What you gonna do? Sue me for article
    fraud?

    10. Become a pro by joining IFPO and sell yourself to people even more
    gullible than you are. Make lots of money, retire, and write a book
    about how to make money with your camera.

    Couldn't care less what your descendency is.
    what's that got to do with your advice above?
    Do you understand basic English?

    ever disagrees with you. Or cares about
    anything you say, really...
    You and your pbase trolls.
