I stumbled on an interesting article at a hotel that noted that professional glass plate photographers were reluctant to use film because they saw it as an amateur medium.
Much like the reluctance I remember when digital first was introduced and film photographers ( like myself) were not impressed by the technology, resolution, color, etc... of the new medium in its infancy.
Anyone seen this kind of parallel written about or have old issues of History mag lying about? I think the mag was American History or history Magazine, definitely not a photo mag - what photo mag does history articles :-(
The article was something like History of Photography (or the history of Kodak), around six years ago.
