Through emulsive.org's facebook posting the following came up . . .
A vintage camera seller is working on a save analog camera's campaign and they are live streaming the results of their work. The company is European . . . Cameraventures
Here is the facebook link https://www.facebook.com/cameraventures/?hc_ref=ARR2W24LutFMFdrExOp8uDbJZk6QYBZkybUHL1mcu_JMjJgCJRI-GTRGa9_TMFabkxk This includes their post/video on this event.

The page on their site that explains the campaign is https://cameraventures.com/help

They have a crowd funding survey with prizes of high end vintage gear depending on the number of responses.

Since film's future is always a question this is very interesting.

Well I don't know about the rest of the world but in the UK film use is just about keeping its head above the water and until recently could buy Agfa Vista (Fuji c200) for 1 and can get development and small scan for 3, the scans are downloaded from the net and free postage back for the negs...just annoying that Royal Mail charge 2.90 to send the film to the lab, if they could just increase their width of letter post by a few mms could send the film in a jiffy bag for 90p Sad
So like most things everything is down to demand and pricing and for me as a film users all my life will draw the line if film and dev becomes too expensive.
