What do we learn from this article?

Either use film (black and white) or print/have your b/w images printed on archival paper.

My guess: No digital file will survive such a long time under a bed 🙂

You consider to discover the world of large format photography, and now you are desperately looking for some help and information. Hm, sounds great, and sounds like the same adventure any LF photographer went through.

I’ll write some stuff about LF photography over the next weeks (or months), and include some links to interesting sites on the net. Don’t expect to see some recommendations about books here, because I really don’t know which one to list here. I guess the list of books about LF photography is pretty long, but not as long as the ‘How to’ books for the digital cameras for nobrainers.

We have taken steps to sustain the business as it has declined, and we know that there are hundreds of passionate fans of film for the artistic and quality reasons they cite. We remain committed to make film as long as there is profitable demand for it. And as I noted, it is still profitable.
