Is Analog Photography doomed?
With pixel count on the rise, I found myself NOT using my analog Hasselblad system anymore and contemplated the idea of selling it. To my surprise - and disappointment-, my photo shop appraised the whole lot for a ridiculous 1.100 Euros : we are talking about a 503CW body + Winder + PME90 metering viewfinder + 03 Haaselblad/Carl Zeiss lenses + 02 backs and Pro Flash. All in good to perfect condition! 1100 Euros is what you would pay for a mid-range D-SLR kit that would become obsolete within 12 to 18 months! How could this compare to probably the best analog medium format system ever made? Sign of the crisis? Freefall of analog photography? Bottom line is I'm keeping the lot and, maybe, one day buy a second hand digital back to give my gear a second life.
