#2 When Poloroid gave up, the photography fans utterly committed to film photography paid a fortune to buy one of Poloroids enormous film processing machines, along with several of their patents.
One such fan put it to me that they didn't care if they had to pay $100 for a roll of film, and another $100 to get it processed, as long as they could get it.

#3 I still have my Minolta XG-1 but I can't find anyone to work on it. I love the pictures I get from it. I just bought a Kodak printer/scanner that prints the best quality pictures of any printer I've ever had.
