« Film Years / Digital Years: How It Stacks Up So Far | Main | The Best Film Camera Bargain »

Monday, 22 July 2019


Feel better soon Mike. I saw something this weekend that you might find interesting. At the "Apollo's Muse" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art they had one of the modified Hasselblad's that the crew used in space. The explanation noted that NASA had Kodak produce film for them with a super thin substrate so that a roll could hold 200 frames instead of the usual 12 or 24. Add that right up there with Tang and Teflon!

I'm still using film for my black and white photo essays. My favorite camera is a Super Ikonta B, which I've had for a long time. Good medium format film cameras can be gotten rather cheaply.

I generally loathe giving out medical advice, but having spent the better part of the past year dealing with debilitating back issues, I am going to offer some.
Before starting PT, make sure they have a clear understanding of what your back condition truly is. My first round of PT was a disaster because the PTs were not following my
doctor's instructions, even though they told me they were. My fault for not doing my due diligence, but I thought trusting the professionals was the wise course. I was wrong.
BTW, a wonderful doctor turned me on to a book called Pain Free by Pete Egoscue and it has helped me tremendously. Good luck with your back issues.
