Eastman Kodak hired law firm Jones Day for restructuring advice as it faces growing concerns from investors over its turnaround prospects. The move signals Kodak is intensifying efforts to ensure it has the financial wherewithal to complete a difficult strategic and financial revamp. Shares in the 131-year-old company sank following Kodak's disclosure that it pulled $160 million from a credit line. In afternoon trading Friday, shares were down 59% to 70 cents.

When people started not using silver halide, you know the Kodak dinosaur ship is gonna sink ga la. Just the normal cycle of companies not able to adapt to changes (in technology in this case), that's all.

50+ Kodak rolls in the fridge.

But even if I accumulate more, there's no use if the developing solutions are out.

Kodak need to make good scanners to have people use film again.  Just rolling out new negative film here and there is no use.

Kodak is kind of like Xerox.  Used to able to print money, but mis-managed in the new world.

there are dedicated scanners for medium format out there
a few thousand dollars each.

now, don't tell me to find one for $100.
or find you a full frame digital for $300.

but if you want quality and have money, the products are there.

"Just spend 5K to get a Nikon Coolscan ED 9000, you poor bastard."

everything costs money

to lower the price you either shred cost or shred quality

At the time the APS system was invented, people thought it's so cool. But in fact it's a total failure and couldn't last long. The world keeps changing, that's the fact. Sooner or later, film is going to disappear totally, same as the digital technology we're now using today. Everyone gotta find their way to accept and survive.
