p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Kodak selling off its film business :(


'Tis a sad, but inevitable day. I used to work for Kodak in their picture maker kiosk customer service department, then in Level 2 customer service for digital cameras until 2006 here in Rochester. In an attempt to repay some of what they owe they want to sell off film production.

If their lazy corporate heads had not been so complacent about the potential competition from digital media, they may have been a legitimate digital contender today. Adapt or you lose. They did not adapt quickly or efficiently enough.

Fujifilm seems to be making a better adjustment to the demise of film... I'm just sayin'.

They will be like Polaroid fairly soon. Focusing on printers and selling patents? Someday Kodak will just be a name used on cheap junk like Polaroid now.

They lost a captive market in North America when Fujifilm became available.

I switched to Fujichrome and Fujicolor from Kodachrome years ago - it was better.

They were dying before digital but didn't know it.

If they do that, they may as well close the doors because they become just a front for Chinese manufacturing. They can not survive as a "service" industry converting vids and movies to digital (which is a dying business too as technology has leapfrogged that).

an opinion. nothing more, nothing less. i have fujichrome from the '80s thats just not holding up. they did change the product later. but Kchrome has stood the test of time.

Kodak will not only sell its print film production, but also its digital imaging kiosks, and the printers and scanners that go with them.

The company hopes that by selling off it's personal imaging division and moving towards becoming a printer business, it can regain some of its mojo. Consider us a little sad, a little nostalgic, and very much pessimistic that printers can save anyone in 2012. [WSJ]

Lousy management right to the end.

Yes, believe it or not, film is still one of the best solutions for landscape photography. It will by far out resolve digital 35mm capture -- you just need to use big film. :-)
