    Perez got what he deserved and wished for years, Kodak is a victim of Kodak policy, nothing else.
    The only ones needed are the ones commited to film, those who aren't, goodbye and good luck.

    Anyone can criticize Kodak. Even I do that! But, I have to remind you that I have had a peek behind the Silver Curtain so to speak and know a bit more about what is going on there than the average individual posting here. Thats all.

The film would therefore be very very expensive to produce in sufficient quantity.

    Maybe they could learn to roll and unroll with fewer defects... ?

    May be Kodachrome discontinued because of repair of machinery cost ? I dont know they were new machines or old . In magazine world , National Geographic was the major kodachrome user and I read at their blog that they switched to soy bean based inks not because of cost but they are easier to manage on old machines. With a less precise calibrations , these inks were successful to produce good results.
    May be Kodak will produce film at the beginning of need of major parts change or renovation.

    maybe they should concentrate on 1 thing instead of spreading themselves so thin ..
    other analog manufacturers are doing that, and seem to be doing OK ...

    Rolling and unrolling, by the nature of the process introduces scuffing defects with each rewind. As I said above, it appears that you have not coated a single sheet let alone a mile. I have coated both single sheets numbering in the thousands and at least 1/5 of a mile personally and a mile on order for testing, so I am quite aware of the problems.

    I'm supporting Kodak. It makes no sense for me to abandon the only film I've used for over 10 years (Tmax) while it's still available. I will continue to buy it and use it while it's still around to be had. If I believe all the armchair CEO'S, COO's, etc., Kodak has mismanaged things. In spite of this they still make one kick a@# film: Tmax.
