    How depressing. I felt terrible watching the demise of Tower Records (worked there for over 10 years, shopped there for many more.) At least I didn't have to watch any of the locations where I worked get imploded for a publicity stunt. Sort of a "perfect" ending to the particularly depressing analog photo week for me.

    so how many people there were using film cameras to record the event?
    Any large format photographers using kodak cameras and film?

    looked like lots of sonys and kids with digicams to me. Ironic?

    Independence from the high cost of ink is intriguing. What exactly are they up to?

    That's the big revolutionary move that they hope will save Kodak--decent printers with good quality cheap ink aimed at a broad audience.

    I hate the idea of old buildings with architectural value demolished. Pity they could not be recycled.

    That's how I felt when the Mapes building in Reno, NV was imploded. Absolutely gorgeous architecture, tons of history...boom. No more. Google it, see what "progress" destroyed.

    It wasn't the Kodak building, but I took a stab at an implosion with LF a few weeks ago. You can find the result in my APUG gallery.

    This is certainly off-topic, but the few reviews I have bothered to check indicate that the paper options purported to offer the dramatically lower costs per page simply don't offer adequate quality (some have remarked they are "draft quality" and not "lab quality"). And the options that produce quality comparable to the competition eliminate the cost savings. Since the printers are considerably pricier than those offered by Epson, Canon, HP - the general conclusion is that they do not represent good value.

    I don't know how the printers are selling. I do know that Kodak signed a deal with OfficeMax last week to sell the printers through their stores.
