Ready, Load, Gone...

Well it was expensive, easily damaged, not good in damp wet weather, useless in the wind and on occasion a bit temperamental. But Kodak Readyload was my staple from the day it was first released. Admittedly I also use dark slides, but for travelling light and dust free negs, it was pretty cool stuff.
The loss of the Readyload isn't such a bad thing, after all it cost more than double boxed sheet film. My only concern is that cut films will be next thing to go given that the industry is governed by the amateur market and profits a kimbo. But before I start replacing my ice pops in the freezer with large format film I will carrying on regardless and remain the optimist (and traditionalist) that I am.
