like delta 3200? Then keep buying it -- as long as there's a market they'll 
probably keep making it, and if there's a market the company will have a 
shot at finding a buyer to keep it going.

the company has more than 60 percent market share, that HAS to be viable, 
it's more a matter of shrinking to meet the new quickly reduced demand. 
tough and can kill a company. The big Yo-yo boom of the 1950s killed the 
company, and there are many other examples.

but no reason to kiss films good bye yet.
