Phasing Out Film Cameras For The General Public

from the analog-is-bad dept

It’s been a little less than a year since UK retailer Dixons’ started phasing out VCR sales and to mark the occasion it seems they’re going to start phasing out the sale of film cameras (which apparently is what the company first sold when it started). Film cameras, of course, aren’t going away just yet, especially for more serious photographers. However, it does seem to be losing the interest of the general public in favor of digital. Of course, for all the sentimental feelings (much more towards the film camera than the VCR) it really doesn’t seem like most people will miss it very much.
