This is not a recession issue, it is market change.

Let's say Kodak did play its cards right, and was king of the hill for digital. Film would still be seeing a load of problems! Maybe Kodak would have discontinued E6 next year instead of this year if they were in the black and fat with cash, but it would still have been discontinued. The problem is that Kodak didn't play its cards right, and there is a chance that after this is over, there might not be a Kodak.

But there has been a technology and thus a market change, and that means fewer users for film.

How many would Kodak need in order to keep operating?

"One employee News 8 spoke with on Friday said he and about 100 other workers in Kodak's film sensitizing division were given pink slips."
It's the usual story in industry, the management fouls up, but the "poor bloody infantry" suffer.
