The popular opinion is that film photography is "dead".
The shift to digital capture largely a result of the instant gratification it offers over film. There are no longer any processing and printing wait times, a previous expense now sparred to the photographer.
The progressive allure of anything auto( auto-focus, auto-aperture, auto-iso, auto-shutter) coupled with immediate photo review and online sharing ability has proven impossible to resist. Most of us has given in.
We have traded our once deeply intimate analog affair(which might have included lots of fumbling in the dark) for mostly convenience- sadly.
As a result we face a possibility of losing a medium that has captured the magical moments of our past forever. Maybe a little too dramatic? The reality though is that some of our favorite film stocks are already no longer produced and processing/printing labs are closing doors. the craftsmanship of yesteryear's hardware
