I recently had the need to copy some 35mm slides. This was done onto cd 
and copied via the internet to a friend. 

I quote from the ps in my e-mail to him; "The quality of these 
images, derived from photographic slides after 50+ years, is a 
remarkable tribute to the durability of film. There is some 
consternation in the film industry about the durability of digital 
techniques for data (image) storage"

Perhaps there is a sound commercial reason for the "lifeline" other 
than artistic purposes?
