    While there’s great romanticism about film and there’s a trend by hipsters to go “old school” for everything: CRT TVs, VHS recorders, reel-to-reel analog audio, cassettes and vinyl; and there’s a great fuss being made about the 70mm release of “The Hateful Eight” (although most theaters have already stopped playing the 70mm version), I think Kodak and Polaroid are fooling themselves. There is absolutely no desire for film by the masses. These are gimmicky, niche products. They’ll get a ton of press and hype, but they won’t sell.

    Even if they did provide better quality (and they probably won’t), consumers have always chosen convenience over quality. Certainly, the explosion of smart phone photography and the decline of most of the rest of the photo business has taught us that as well as the growth of inferior compressed MP3 over other physical digital and analog media.

    But if I’m wrong, fantastic. I’d love to see film survive a bit longer. I still shoot a bit of b&w film every once in a while. I still have a Nikon F3, a Nikon N80 and a TLR Rollei, all in working condition.
