    Kodak announcement

    In todays Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, Mary Jane Hellyar, president of Kodak's film and photofinishing group says that 9 out of 10 professionals use digital cameras, but 2/3rds of them still use film for a portion of their work and that one half of US households still use film.

    Kodak says that although film will never dominate the market, it will likely never disappear and that it will continue to be a smaller, viable and prfitable business well into the future.

    This paraphrase should counter some of the doom and gloom out there.

    The complete text is to be released on Sunday at PMA.

    Thanks for sharing with the rest of the group what a number of us already know.

    Next time someone wants to rain on the film parade, (and it will continue in regular intervals as clockwork) link them to this post.

    Long live analog!

    just to add to this news;

    yesterday my dealer was telling me that in a news letter they received there was an article about the growing trend with the 17 to 25 age group and their growing interest in film. That film might be dead with the over 50's crowd, not so with the younger people.
