Question by Kimberly E: Getting rid of film for cameras?
Is anyone else a little upset about this? Don’t get me wrong, I love digital and being able to delete bad pictures. I also use all the editing programs since I am a photographer. The thing is, film and working in the darkroom is what made me fall in love with photography. I still use the old Cannon film cameras. It is just part of the magic in my opinion. On another note, not everyone wants to take the time to learn the programs available to them, especially older generations. I think it is a mistake to get rid of film completely. If they want to cut back on it, make it available to photographers and schools. What do you think?

Not every manufacturer is “getting rid” of film. Those that have are doing so for purely business reasons and those businesses certainly have that right. Kodak, for instance, is under not moral or ethical obligation to keep producing a product that is not a profitable for them as the new technology. Polaroid, is another that gave the public PLENTY of notice that they were discontinuing a product line.
