I gave up on film in 2003 when after a holiday in the Austrian Alps I put eight films into Kodak for D&P and they lost them all. Somehow I believe approximately 30,000 films and their address labels had got separated. It took nine months and numerous visits and phone calls to the lab to get reunited with my prints. I eventually got the prints back but by then I had bought a Pentax 330GS compact. At least Kodak didn't charge me for the prints..!! I still have my Pentax Spotmatic which gets a loving caress from time to time.
