According to the news on www.dpreview.com film sales continue to decline and the sales of digital cameras are increasing. Kodak announced they are laying off workers and discontinuing making reloadable APS and 35mm cameras. Digital camera sales are expected to peak in two years. However people are ordering less prints. As an aside I found a good on-line printer at good prices who will do odd sizes and make big enlargements. See www.perfectposters.com You e-mail them a photo and they print it the same day and return it to you by priority mail. Very very fast. Just what I needed. About 1/3rd the price of Ritz camera.
