    It'll be interesting to own a condenser enlarger using incandescent bulbs.... Perhaps stockpile them? Or buy a cold light head... Or can you use fluorescent lights (with warm-up problems) successfully in an enlarger?

    Is this thread about Kodak and Chinese film manufacturing plants or is it about tungsten filament light bulb bans?

    Bart,

    Don't be so strict; it was the starter of this thread anyway, who could not decide which way to go...

    But this thread also shows that obviously no one from China is around here.

    I could name several very distinguished members of the Kodak research community who may visit these pages and could dispute that comment.

    I doubt if they post or would even consider posting though.

    Sorry for that misspelling.

    PE,

    I was not referring to someone from Kodak China, but just a `plain´ Apugger from China.

    My remark was made rather in jest, but a large number of members of the Rochester Research labs are Chinese. Several members of the unit I worked in were Chinese as was the Asst. Dir. of Research.

    So, apologies if it was misunderstood.

    If Kodak intends to make only small quantity of film then they are much better off making them here in the US. While China is no longer a poor country but many of China neigbors are. And I may be wrong but people in poor countries tend to go for digital than film. I think people in Japan, Europe and US use the most film. I doubt that Japanese film shooters would prefer Kodak over Fuji.

    The move directly from B&W to Color Digital is one of the primary causes of the demise of the Kodak plants in Brazil and China. It was originally expected that film would have a longer lifetime in those places than elsewhere. The models appear to have been wrong. I have said this over and over.

    As the economy improves, and digital prices drop, people in third world countries move directly to digital.
