The lines are getting just a bit more blurry for the stil photographer and budding video shooter.  More and more in the field we are seeing the 5D Mark II and D7000 being employed for on the fly video.  The savey shooter can actually double book a commercial job and produce wonderful results in both arenas.  Of course, the problem now is the deluge of rigs and accessories that are supposed to aid in video but don’t.  The single most mentioned problem we hear in the field is the issue of focussing.  We would love to know what tech our colleagues have seen just outside the bubble to address this issue…?

Remember when we all had to actually put film in our cameras? When we would spend time in the dark room?  When touching up photos meant something more than a few clicks of a mouse?  If you are like us, you made the switch to digital a decade ago.  I am pretty sure you can’t even buy film at Walmart or Target anymore, now only available through specialty retailers.

This article posted earlier today on USAToday.com shows there are still enough enthusiasts out there to keep the camera business alive.  Kodak says they still plan to make film as long as there is a viable market for it.  But as the article states, when these people’s cameras break down, they with replace them with digital.  It will be a sad day when they are all gone, photography will never be the same.
