Film camera death watch II: Who cares?

Wired's Gadget Lab blog notes, under the headline "Film Cameras Officially Dead In Japan" that indeed, only 529 film cameras were sold in Japan in February, but get this: according to Wired, the number of new digital still cameras sold in January was 5,417,463 vs. 1,580 film still cameras the same month.

Then again, as B&W World friend David Schonauer, editor of American Photo, asks in his State of the Art blog, are you sad about this?

I think David asks the wrong question. The right question is: What will pot users store their stash in now?
