Drag to set position!

Chris Bloom September 30, 2009
October 1 is finally upon us. I'm amazed by the interest shown in this idea. Thank you all for supporting the project.

Group Description

In a World with an ever decreasing supply of photographic film and film processing, we should be able to somehow find a way of showing our support for those manufacturers and retailers who still continue to offer these services.

I ask all who enjoy shooting on film to go out on the same day, October 1, and buy a roll (or rolls or sheets for that matter!) of film. I'm sure the sudden spike in film sales would be noticed and the industry will realise there is still quite a considerable sized market for film.

If you don't have a film camera but still appreciate film photography then why not go and get a disposable camera.

It would also be great if as many people as possible were to shoot that same roll and get it processed on that same day.

Please show your support for this project by joining this group. Please feel free to post images to the group pool, as long as they are shot on film of course ;-)
