Not building any more film cameras? Those film cameras are built to last.
I know people shooting film with 1940s Eyemos
and 1930s Mitchells. Wonder where all those digital Genesis and Origins
will be in five years.
Maybe Ebay.

I agree here as well.
I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting really sick and tired of
all this digital snarkiness.
I'm also waiting for the day when a modern digital video camera-- and face
it, that's what it is, video -- will physically last as long as the most
average Super 8 or 16 one, let alone 35mm.
And when they don't-- which they won't-- will their discardability and
obsolescence then be seen as a philosophical virtue? Probably.
