I know it sounds like, "I told you so" but this is what I thought would happen.
My impression - only an impression - is that some cameras are going up in price on the second hand market, given their increasing scarcity in decent condition. That can only mean one thing - that people will search out something new. Where there's a will, there's a way. With modern 3D printing, it is not beyond someone's skill to turn out a new film camera.
For all these projects, I wish them the best of luck and commercial success, whether it be new film stocks or new cameras. I'm a bit short myself at the moment, so will stick with my faves: Mamiya 7 II, Contax G2 and Konica Minolta Hexar RF. If one of them breaks, then count me in!
What I don't understand is why some people on the internet are abusing these efforts.
The future looks dire, but try to be positive - it's not all black and white, so don't be so negative.
