    It's odd, when I read that I can't help but here it in my head with that old tinny pseudo-synthesized voice from mid-60s sci fi shows.

    Well I'm paraphrasing Doctor Who and the Daleks...

    There's also lost in space, but that was a good robot voice "danger will Robinson, danger!"

    LOL, the Daleks voice is exactly what I "heard," but from the old movies. Never really saw the series.
    I'm a big fan of Lost In Space, though. Grew up on the reruns.

    The old voice and the new voice are essentially the same. They try to keep it consistent.

    I forget now, did Kodak actually put film prices up in 2012?
    2012 seems so 20th Century now!

As a note in a lot of markets Kodak is the lowest priced of the big three and not by a small margin. In Austria for instance Ilford is in average 1 to 2 Euros more expensive than similar Kodak products Fuji is even more expensive. So how evil is Kodak I'd say less evil in their price politcs than their competitor who don't get even half the flack Kodak receives.

    I also think that Alaris and EK should employ a Simon Galley type.

    A happy Kodak, Ilford and Fuji user.
    Well Im happy for you in Austria.
    But my point was a marketing observation our happy snappers are buying rebadged Fuji 200 for two reasons it is in a Poundland (real cheap) chain shop and cheap.
    The Ilford, Kodak and Fuji in the pharmacy few doors away will not be selling like it might otherwise sell. So the pharmacy chain may not restock with the same volume.
    My circumstances are different I only use mono and buy 5222 (cine) cause it is about 50% of Ilford bulk and 25% of Kodak's bulk.
    The distribution margins seem large and Fuji may need to dump excess production before exiting the market.
    Agfa did the same as they went broke.
    Im still shooting Agfa speed trap film I got about 2000 feet of it in '07.
    Id suggest Kodak's management have fallen of the potty to sell into a saturated market you need to cut overheads from production to end user.
    Eastman would not have recruited a bungee manager.
    Fuji look like they are saying Sayonara.
    5222 is an excellent product even if it were at a premium price, my Kodak all in one office printer does excellent gilee prints I bought it cause it was the cheapest scanner...
