    Re: Medium Format Infrared Images

    Wow!

    I've got something like 10 - 20 rolls of Efke IR820 in 120 in my freezer. This sorely tempts me to start using it.

    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    I would never ride a motorcycle that I had touched with a wrench.

    A man has to know his limitations. Mechanical things are one of mine. I ride, but I don't wrench.

    Re: The comeback of film?

    Maybe, but the marginal cost per shot is still so low compared to film, even 35mm, that it's in another universe and pretty much irrelevant.

    Memory cards also have a finite, though very large,...

    And they are all doing it digitally now and spraying a lot more because they see the results and choices immediately and can spray constantly for essentially zero marginal cost.

    Re: The comeback of film?

    Marginal cost per shot is much higher in 35mm (though lower than in larger formats) and then there's the lack of instant feedback. Both tend to encourage one to take more time to get it right and...

    Film isn't too expensive for most people, or wouldn't be if they didn't (probably) want an absurd number of images combined with instant gratification. The former is expensive and the latter...

    It's good to be single. I buy what I want when I want and as I want. Harrumph.

    Then again, I do have some self control. I have a house and no squalor, and not nearly all the toys I'd like.

    Re: Fomapan 100, 200 and 400

    Yes that's great and the prices aren't even bad considering today's prices in general and the market though I suspect shipping one would add enormously to those prices.
