Posted on 03/01/2012 5:40:05 PM PST by SWAMPSNIPER
Kodak announced today that it has decided to discontinue its color reversal (AKA slide) films due to a steady decrease in sales and usage. The films discontinued are Ektachrome E100G/E100VS and Elite Chrome Extra Color 100. The company estimates that based on current sales pace, youll still be able to purchase the discontinued films for about six to nine months. If you were a loyal Kodak slide film shooter, itll soon be time to switch over to negative film or to Fujifilm color reversal films.

My Nikon 8008 has been pretty much worthless for a while now.
My Minolta XTSi brings about 30 bucks now, in excellent condition, but the lens in this picture is still worth over 200 bucks.
I think it's that clear plastic sheet which covers the LCD viewer on new cameras.
And for good reason.
That lens will make great pictures on a new Sony camera.
The old Minolta "legacy" lenses are a great reason to shoot a Sony.
I’m in the same position with a Canon A-1. I’ve got lenses professionals paid dearly for in the 1980’s, that probably couldn’t be made today. There were rumors of someone making “digital backs” for these cameras, but I don’t think that’s going to happen.
I've 6 lenses that fit the body.
It's my understanding...that there is a digital Nikon...that will "take" those lenses. Not sure if that is true. Anyone know?
Getting closer to that day we hear the words...”Kodak to discontinue all operations”.
How the mighty have fallen....
A problem with manual focus lenses on digital bodies is that most digital cameras don’t have a focus screen designed for them. You can set them up that way but it’s expensive. The camera may not be able to couple with the aperture, that means you have to do that manually as well.
Almost all of the Nikon F series is compatible with all the DX series cameras. They don’t work with the D40 and the like, but not otherwise a problem. Nikon has done a great job of maintaining compatibility.
Just kidding. Digital still has a ways to go to overtake the quality of film.
What a hoot. Last time I checked on it’s value, it was around 40 bucks.
I have a macro lens and a zoom. I would love to use them, need to figure out if I could use them on a digital camera.
I just recently got myself a point and shoot digital with an attached zoom lens but it’s not the same as the Nikon was.
I've got a little Nikon L110 for a drag anywhere camera, compared to my DSLR it is an aggravating toy. It just won't produce what I want in most cases.
Afraid of that...........
