I wonder if Google will come in...since Google have bought Motorola, maybe want to incorporate "better" camera in phones?
Not to forget, the Chinese also bought over Phillips Mobile Division...
It is really sad that Kodak is running into such trouble... I remember my first camera (film one) was a kodak... I love it to pieces.
Frankly... I am hoping for Olympus to buy down Kodak... afterall the 4/3 sensor was a joint venture with Kodak in developement...

I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
My lousy shots
If the guy had used digital, there will be no hazard of film acids.
I don't get it why digital camera users hate film so much.
Film won't die, kodak might restrict to limited production per year. (There are still others like Ilford, Ekfa, Fuji, Shanghai...) But nothing will kill film due to certain industry still need film to produce what digital cannot produce till today. What will be a more possible problem will be the continue rising of film price due to silver cost and lack of market on home consumer level. When that day comes, I should be already starting on wet plate already. ;P
This is a 2007 article that shows that Vinyl records are still made at a 20k to 40k per day rate. Mostly for more specialised uses like for DJs and marketing.
i'm not saying that film will definitely continue to live like Vinyl, but i'm not ready to lose hope and sound the death knell for film just yet. Film still has it's advantages, superiority in certain areas and an inimitable look which has yet to be reproduced in digital. These factors alone may keep film alive for a long long time more.
We can do our part and shoot more film NOW!
I believe they can earn quite alot by selling film to steven spielberg
KODAK will soon bought by a greedy hedge fund (grasshopper!!!),
then, as always totally dismantled and robbed & looted.
...after the hedge fund seeks to plunder the next company......!
I bought re-branded Neopan from freestyle, Legacy Pro 400.
Largeformat, aero ektar speed graphic, bokeh can lao chap big time.
Are Kodak EasyShare cams sold in sg? If so, where can I find them?
