    An ignorant idiot? Runs in the family? Really? Considering all the aforementioned difficulties of carrying film in a mom and pop camera store and the pitiful returns on selling it, I'm surprised that the sheer disproportion of your remark did not occur to you before you hit the "submit reply" button. I find it perplexing... Perhaps you thought you were being insightful?

    He is an ignorant idiot
    Seen the discussion on Kodak's actual production at least here in Europe and the latest press releases indicating Kodak stock being substituted by another manufacturer, I would not blame any dealer to come to such conclusion.

    Does Kodak still make film? (Yes, they do)

    That song is "Well, Did You Evah!" by the immortal Cole Porter. Iggy Pop and Deborah Harry did a great remake of it on the charity 'Red, Hot + Blue' compilation in about 1991.

    We would not have to guess or speculate if somebody from Kodak was willing to communicate at least 10% the way the Ilford does. How difficult or costly would be to have somebody from Kodak monitor forum like ours not even daily but 3 times per week and address all concerns? You can even create alerts using search engines which will notify you if your company name will be mentioned in certain context and react. It's just how they were and are doing business for many years. It is sad...

    Kodak hired people to post on social media. But as Apug is not considered to be a social medium...

    good point, yes they did

    sample below:
    "What are some of your favorite winter sports? Do you take as many pictures as you do in the summer?

    Remember your cold weather fun by making personalized photo products like photo books and collages at Kodak Picture Kiosk --> http://kodak.ly/findakiosk"

    I don't agree with name calling either but given that Kodak most assuredly IS still making film, his claim of knowledge to the contrary clearly does display ignorance, in the real meaning of the word if not necessarily the connotation it has acquired in more recent times. He is probably not anything remotely like an "idiot," I agree. But he wasn't accused of ignorance (nor idiocy) for not carrying film. THAT is very understandable. He was accused of those things for claiming that Kodak quit making film five years ago, which is clearly and emphatically incorrect.

    Kodachrome is part of the problem. When Kodak announced they would stop making Kodachrome, it's amazing how many people inferred from that that Kodak was out of the film business entirely. I think there's still some ripple effect at work among the uninformed.

    ETA: Granted, the shop employee in question should not be among the uninformed, but that's another matter.

    Wow. Thanks for parsing this dense text Roger.
