    It's darn convenient...

    Here's something even more unbelievable. I can remember buying 8 x 10 film at their downtown store. I mean, like right in the store and everything. I'd give them money and they'd hand me a box of 8 x 10 sheet film with which I could drive home. And I'm not even 100 years old yet.

    Kodak's self-fulfilling prophecy?

    At the last Sydney photo trade fair a few months ago, Kodak had a stand there of course, but even though it is the 50th anniversary of the epoch-making Tri-X, which could have been a good marketing exercise, not a single roll of film was present at the entire stand, and all they displayed was digital equipment. If Kodak convinced themselves that film has no market future, they will indeed act accordingly.
