    Dead man walking.

    A company I worked for in the 90s was aquired by Kodak. It was clear then that they hadnt a clue. Sad.

    This is very sad my first 'Brownie' was Kodak...Unfortunately I don't think this will be last company to 'bottom-up' sorry I've just come off the 'Bottom' thread.

    This is so sad. It's heartbreaking to think of a world without Tri-X. Plus, who will make the sensor for the M10?

    I thought they already sold their sensor business??

    They are selling off all the parts. Now they are selling their patents. The new CEO for Kodak is a lawyer who spent her career with Kodak licensing selling Kodak's IP. Tell's you where they are going. (supposedly their future is in printers, but why on earth would someone make a run at that business).

    Another sad note- Penn Camera files for Chapter 11. 5 stores clsing now, 3 more in the future. One of the best camera shops in the DC area.

    Kodak, Polaroid, I really think these companies just lost their way. Considering that I can get film again for my SX-70, I am sure someone will pick up film production. It will be a niche item. But right now, I'm getting it for $1 a roll and developed for $4. When i need to switch to B&W and develop myself, i will.
