The modern world marches on and alas another anachronism from a bygone age seems to have gone.
I read on the net that Nikon have stopped producing there last film SLR the F6. I suspect this was actually stopped a while back but after reading of its demise I noticed that warehouseexpress have removed it from their site this week.
The F6 was introduced in 2004 when digital was well on its march to dominance. The last of a long line of Nikon F film bodies.
I am new to photography only owning a dSLR but part of me knows that I'd have learnt alot from shooting film. With digital you don't need to think so much point click ad check screen. Oh delete and if its still wrong when you download have fix with a tool like photoshop.
With film each shot is money so you have to get it right.
I read that a dSLR has better image quality than film but I'd be interested to know how a good film camera like the F6 would compare to a Nikon d300/d700 or a Canon 50d.
I guess now film can't compete with digital but it does seem sad.
