Sad day, but we probably knew it was coming.

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

This occurred about 2 years ago. The date on the bulletin is 2013. Back then I stocked up on provia 400 and bought 8 rolls at 16 bucks a roll.

LOL, I guess that shows how often I shoot slide film these days!!! There still seems to be a lot of Provia 400x available from Japan through Amazon. I'm going to get a 5 pack.

where did you get it James? Just curious-I still have all 8 rolls I got in the freezer. If I need to shoot slide film at ISO 200 or 400, I just push Provia 100. I'm saving it for those times when I need really fast film, I'll push 400 to 800 or 1600. But I wasn't all that impressed with Provia 400X. I've shot a few rolls of it and the colors were just a tad weak, kinda reminded me of Kodachrome.
