    So just what is being made in Kodak Park?

    I was talking to a gallery owner, former Nat Geo photog and half-nutcase last week who told me no film is being made in Rochester and all the machines have been torn down. That's not what I recall reading here. He's a lot more connected than I so I am doubting my memory. So just what is being made in Kodak Park?

    I don't know about what else is being made, but film is being made/coated in building 38 which is a state of the art facility.

    People should stop spreading bad information.

    It's a digital shooter thing. They love spreading this crap.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Just like APUG members like to spread rumors about all things digital. It's not an analog or digital thing - people just like to tell stories based on information they think they heard.

    There is still one manufacturing line at old Kodak making still and cine fiilms. Furthermore there is a machine shop making their consumer(?) and their industrial printing machines. I guess their single-use cameras are made there too.
    Kodak is seeking tennants for their estate.

    Yeah, well.

    Funny, but this guy shoots film only. One of his first jobs was as a lab assistant for St Ansel and he was a staff shooter for National Geographic. He really is crazy, though. Loves to tell stories. It was hard to get out the door.

    Seen the relative decline of Kodak worldwide and at Kodak Park during the last years that guy is not far off from truth.

    I wish I could find it now - a lf photographer just recently made a really-well done short about film but basically said the same thing - film is dead, not getting made anymore, end of an art, blah blah blah
