    A bit of interesting news for all us old timers.

    (CBS) They are fast becoming a memory of Christmas past - photographs taken the old way, with film. And the most famous film of all -- Kodachrome -- is itself about to become a memory, as CBS News correspondent Jim Axelrod reports.

    yeah, i seen this on the news, too bad i still have a few blank rolls. and a disposible camera, might be a good thing to keep around for the sake of it.
    something people will look at it and say "what the heck is that ?"
    idk, i honestly think they should keep it. no pixels lol

    That's a sad news. One of my fond possessions is the Nikon SLR camera I bought 20 years ago. Then it costed me over $1300 and it still works great. I hope we would still get film rolls for some more years from other makers.
