    Seems like a lot of work. Besides, you can't teach old dog a new trick.

    Is it because photography has now got so easy that anything that is a pita must be seen as (must have regardless of cost)

    What's next, going back to coating your own plates.

    Still a pointless product but fools and their money and all that I suppose.

    There are plenty of people using wet plate techniques. Personally, I do not usually like the results but if film completely dies it might be all us Luddites have left.

    It doesn't appeal to me either because of the small print size and lack of negative but I can see that others might like it. It reminds me of that tiny Polaroid format ( instax or whatever it's called) or the prints that used to come out of the old selfie photo booths.

    Quick and easy isn't always the the most desired way. Years ago I built a crib for my soon to be born son; I could have used all power tools and it would have been quicker and a lot easier, but those hand cut mortise and tenon joints were way more special.

    Obviously you were not included in the market research done prior to launching the product. But companies don't just make a niché product on a whim. They find our first if there's a profit to be made. And in order to make a profit, someone has to buy it.

    Just because [i [you [/i]have no need for it doesn't make it worthless, nor does those buying it make them fools just because you say so.

    I know a guy who bought a bunch of lumber to make custom bookshelves for his study. Before he got started in earnest, his wife was diagnosed with cancer. In the two years it took for her to succumb to it, he repurposed the lumber and made a casket instead.
