    More on Kodak

    Posted on CNN this morning:

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Eastman Kodak Co. Wednesday said it would cut up to 10,000 more jobs than previously announced to speed its move into digital products, and also posted a quarterly net loss due to restructuring costs and a faster-than-expected decline in film sales.

    Wow, and here they say there's been a staggering 30% increase in the return to (slide) film.

    I for one am part of this group - I shoot all my family photos on slide film, except for when I have another roll of B&W in my camera.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Yeah, right. Typical management doublespeak - cutting jobs to "speed things up". Reducing the labor force will NEVER speed things up - it can only slow things DOWN. If they are trying to goose their bottom line by screwing their employees they should say .... wait!! That would require integrity! Obviously that characteristic is totally absent ...
    Sounds to me like a "Polaroid type" of maneuver .. to make the Officers of the company incredibly wealthy through bankruptcy.

    I'll have to check my portfolio. If there is any Kodak stock in there now, there won't be by tomorrow morning.
    Carpe erratum!!

    Bob, I don't know of any article on that but lecturers in one of the major college's (that are as of next year reducing analogue studies to incorporate more digital) are announcing this to their students as well as one of the leading photography suppliers (of both digital and analogue) are also suporting this. So I'm also happy to spread the work and encourage more people to consider shooting film/slide.

    Also, my commercial clients so far still prefer slide images instead of digital.

    Thats right Ed, another example of incompetent managements inability to anticipate market trends, and the "poor bloody infantry"having to suffer.

    Sounds like a pre-excuse to bailing out of the film business doesn't it?

    This is from their site. If you google Kodak you'll find others.
