I think film will be around forever, and I’m very grateful for my experiences shooting film.
But at this point moving forward, “electric” (digital) cameras are the future.
Digital medium format
Digital medium format is one of the futures. Already now you can get a Pentax 645z (for $5k brand new), and you can even find second hand used Pentax 645z cameras for less than $4k.
Also, even now you can get the very compact and formidable Fujifilm GFX 50R for only $4k brand new!
RICOH GR III
Even right now the digital RICOH GR III is killing it. Black and white high contrast mode JPEG is as good (if not better) than black and white film (Kodak Trix Pushed to 1600). It’s only $890, and it’s even smaller than the RICOH GR II!
