You blink and you miss it.

In other news, I seem to have missed the final transition from film to digital cameras.  I assumed that the high end was still split, but it looks like most of the people that sold film cameras have stopped doing so.  Canon still has one for sale, and there are a couple of very high end models.  But film seems to have pretty much vanished entirely.

I can't say that I'm surprised that it's happened - but part of me is surprised that it happened so quickly at the high end.  It was only a couple of years ago that I saw photographers talking about how much better film was for professional photography.  I guess it stopped being so, and everyone converted.

How long until there's no market for camera film or development and another piece of technology vanishes forever?
