    I don't think it's a joke. They must have perfected a 3D silver matrix technology. Then, by toning this 3D image in carbon based toner, viola! A live living creature pops out of an image....

    Um.... wa...?! What's today's date?

    But these are just normal kittens! Now, if they were Kodachrome kittens, that would be special!

    I hear fellow APUG subscriber Stephen Frizza has just recently demonstrated this capability via (Colour) Kittychrome home processing...

    If Kodak carry on with their current business model, they won't be in any business at all.

    My old cats name was Shuppie comes from 3500 years old Hittite King Suppiluliuma. She was a Siberian cat and really blue blooded Queen at home. New lady is Minnosh and just a copy of Kodak page most right side kitten. I really love cats , they really invaded me.

    How many of these APUGers have cat hair problems with film holders, negative carriers and cat hair on your lens? We really suffer as cat lovers being photographers. But the cats don't care.

    Haaa, good one Kodak! Loved the full article:

    "Long term development will be focused on the higher speed and larger formats of our commercial printing platforms. KODAK NEXPRESS and PROSPER presses will soon be producing a vast array of land mammals at an astoundingly low cost per thousand."

    Haaaa!

    Yeah I know. But have you shot and processed a big, beautiful LF neg only to see a cat hair was in the film holder. Bring out the opaque. Maybe I'll have to stop souping film in PyroCat?

    Frequently. The cat denies all knowledge of the matter.
