    I don't think the FDC would really care about this one way or another. It's a niche market and while it is a market that is dear to us, it is not going to affect the lives of most. It won't even be a blip.

    It's wishful thinking that Ilford would buy Kodak's film division. Kodak's production infrastructure is now far too large (again) and Ilford itself has too much capacity.

    From Ilford's point-of-view it would be best that EK's pictorial film division shut down operations entirely.
    Digital Photography is just "why-tech" not "high tech"..

    No one is going to buy just the film division to shut it down.

    Aaarrrrghhh!

    I clicked somewhere and was taken to a page plastered with "SO KODAK"!

    I didn't mean to. It just sorta happened.

    I don't feel so good.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    The content of that link is restricted to members of that site, perhaps you could sum it up, in case it is of interest. You yourself seem not so shure about that...

    I'm not on Facebook, any chance of copying and pasting those comments in here so non-FB people like myself can read them?

    Cheers

    Oh! sorry about that!

    <Brian Dotson So is Kodak dumping the Film division or not?
    Friday at 6:27pm >

    and the reply;

    <<Kodak Hey Brian- No Kodak is not dumping the Film division. As long as customers continue to buy our film, we'll continue to make it.>>

    Can probably be qualified further to, "As long as ENOUGH customers continue to buy ENOUGH OF our film TO MAKE IT WORTH OUR WHILE, we'll continue to make A LIMITED PRODUCT SUBSET OF it."
