…thanks to Fuji film!
Agfa Vista, OK it was not the best loved and best looking film around, but it was among the cheapest to be had. And frankly, the quality was not too shabby!
Of course it has nothing to do with Agfa apart from the name. It was a rebranded film made by Fuji.
Sure, it’s not the end of Film, there’s still loads of other emulsions around and even more thanks to Kodak. But it will drive the cost of film higher globally. One of the cheapest ways to shot film gone, average price will climb a bit… more.
On one hand we will gain (hopefully) Ektachrome and T-max 3200, on the other hand, Fujif
ilm seem to outdo themselves killing off film.
Who has it right? Who will win in the end? Is film just a fad for some eternal nostalgics or has it still it’s place in 2018?
Those are the questions we film shooters will have to live with for the near future. Perhaps one day we will have the answer and will smile and say: “You see, told you years ago I was right!”
Thanks for stopping by!
