    The end for Kodak?

    Forgive me if someone's already posted this, but it looks like Kodak has finally hit the buffers...

    It's just a way to sell their patents for more than they could get otherwise, all is well, stay calm. ;-)

    Chapter 11 would at least mean they could continue to operate while reorganizing. It certainly wouldn't be a good sign, but it wouldn't automatically mean that any specific activity (like coating film) crashed to a halt.

    And as to what would come out the other end after a reorg, who knows? As people keep noting, their film division when looked at in isolation has been running a profit, so it seems like it could conceivably make sense to sell off or spin off in the course of bankruptcy proceedings. But I'm just speculating here---I know roughly as much about business organizations and finance as a turnip does.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    Exactly a year after the death of Kodachrome.

    It doesn't sound good, I hope they pull it off.

    The Industry News forum is so grim I'm tempted to place it in my ignore folder.

    Does anyone want to hazard a (realistic) guess to a worst case and best case scenario for Kodak?
