    I heard on the news yesterday that Dixons are not going to be selling 35mm cameras anymore because people don't buy them. They are going to concentrate on digital from now on.

    For anyone from outside the Uk Dixons is a very large electrical goods store here in the Uk. They also recently said they're going to stop stocking VCRs as well, I think they like stopping people from being able to get hold of older technology.

    Just though you might like to know...

    There's a thread in the general-photo forum oop top.

    I don't think it's that they want to stop people from getting hold of older items. It's more a case of the average Joe on the street wanting the latest smallest piece of technology out there so they're feeding that market. It's where the big money is.
    I've never bought anything from Dixons anyway. :lol:
