When I was a kid, I lived by the little yellow instruction sheet Kodak provided in each box of film showing those little icons of the sun -sunny, cloudy, etc. There would be that little comment about closing up if was snowy or your were at the beach. That all went away with my first 35mm - a Nikon F Photomic T. But, I was always fascinated by Kodak instructions and other pamphlets about Kodak and film. I would read their little pamphlets like they came from a deity on how to shoot better, how film works, etc. When they went bankrupt, I was heartbroken. It was like losing your grandmother.
