    Default Blast from the Past: Kodak Ad from 2006

    Picked this up from Petapixel:

    Video Missing

    "In the funny-but-also-sad ad from 2006, Kodak sought to convince the world that it was ready to move to the forefront of the digital revolution that it had given birth to and then ignored for so long. You know… the same one that ended up forcing the company to declare bankruptcy a little more than half a decade later.
    The ad was dug out of the archives by the folks over at La Vida Leica, and it would actually be a pretty funny commercial if hindsight didn’t render it so painfully, tragically ironic."


    A part of the really sad Kodak story, what a waste of a once industry-leading company.

    Time waits for no man.

    When a need to change arises, better change fast.

    Fujifilm didn't do that great either.

    Kodak did make some very good sensors, but they only had a niche market.
    Their KA series are pretty impressive. I have 2 cameras which use those. Hardly used my dslr after i got them.

    A good example that no one owe anyone a living.... being the 'Best' in the past, doesn't mean you'll remain the same in the future.

    Same will happen to the 'Big Two' if they don't keep innovate....
