I live in Las Vegas...and I heard that there will always be slide film
made...but its becomming harder to get ahold of it...we actually only have
one or two places now here that actually process E-6...other places send it
out and who knows if you are going to get quality back...even though the
colledges are not going digital, it seems other companies that used to use
slides are going digital...
the other places or people who used to use slide processes, are really going
digital which means there is less supply and demand...but, i know that one
camera store told me that there will always be slide film produced. I am
thinking that if I need it in the future that I might have to find a place
on line to order from...

Subject: slide film
Any one else taking slides of student art work at the
end of the year having difficulty getting slide film?
I usually get Kodak or Fuji at my local WalMart or
Target- but neither had it- and I went to 3 WalMarts.
I went to a camera shop and they were out of most all
kinds of slide film. I heard one company that makes
slide projectors was discontinuing production this
January. Personally, I am taking pictures of most of
the student work with a digital camera and will save
it to a CD- but I am attending some events this summer
that ask for slides of student work. I heard the
College Board has no plans to go to a digital format
any time soon for Advanced Placement porfolios. Post
high school programs still seem to mainly want slides-
So what gives?
