    Kodak keeping film production.

    http://motion.kodak.com/motion/About...#ixzz25iFW1V6c

    This has appeared today. It seems the film (stills and motion picture) making part of Kodak is not part of the sell off. Good news.

    The other thread that Kodak is selling its film has got to 50 pages. This one has managed two, now three posts. It seems very clear that Kodak will not be selling its motion picture film but in words of one syllable can anyone identify what still films will not be sold? Is it the whole current range of B&W and colour neg?

    It sounds like very good news but it would be nice if a Kodak exec would simply say either: "All Kodak consumer film, I repeat all Kodak consumer film, will continue as Kodak products and will not be sold or stopped"

    No-one these days seems to want to believe good news - its just not exciting enough and worse, kills all discussion.

    However the good news announcers from the company in question could be a little plainer so no-one is in any doubt and the moderators could close all the doomsday threads and we could get back to discussing dull stuff about photography.

    All of it.

    "Kodak will continue to manufacture and distribute its quality line of motion picture film products. As a matter of fact, all film manufacturing will actually stay with Kodak, including that of consumer and professional still film."

    As I posted in the other thread, it appears that Kodak will no longer market or distribute their still film products to end users or retailers, nor will it provide the sort of end-user or retailer support it currently does.

    And this sould be the final statement on what is essentially overly long, nauseating, conjectural hyped and hysterical discourse. Let Kodak be Kodak with or without film.

    So the movie and still film production will remain in Kodak. But the marketing and distribution of the still film will be sold as a business unit???
