Of course everyone is singing "momma don't take my kodachrome away" when reading this. Yes, I believe it's sad, but there has been a paradigm shift to digital. There are many obvious advantages including instant feedback for the photographer and subject. Digital may not have the dynamic range of film, but advances are being made all the time.

Remembering the times when shooting 36 pictures was a lot.
Used to buy a couple 36 size rolls of film for vacations and special events.
Now digital SLRs can take thousands in a few short hours.
Camera technology sure has advanced.
Is film headed for complete extinction?
