I can’t get out of my mind that Agfa has decided to skip all LF activities. To me this has a strong symbolic charakter for the last convulsions of analog photography in general.
Ok, a complete digital workflow for studio photography is not just efficient but is definitely also fun to use. The same goes for photojournalists switching to something like a Canon D1s and the average consumer rediscovering photography with his point&shoot digital camera.
But what has the industry on offer for us? A digital back for USD 25.000 which gives us the unique opportunity to also carry a laptop and a bunch of batteries in our much too light backpack?
I can’t get rid of the impression that people like the members of this forum are the only ones on the loosing side of this game.
Contrary opinions are very much appreciated…
