    Most 35mm Kodak films, for some years, seem to have been "finished and packed in Mexico"...presumably this factory?
    (Did I see somewhere here that the finishing has all already been relocated back to Rochester?)

    Bought a bunch of Kodak flash single use cameras for New Year's that were all imported from the UK(?!).

    Not sure where the cam assembly will go next.

    I meant by sadly, like 'sadly a few 100 Kodak film employees lost their job today...'

    As far as why, just ask Aristo he can kindly itemize his theorem re lack of MP, lack of new cameras, labs, etc, etc, etc,

    I am just taking pause to recognize the fact that some film workers lost their job today regardless of why (Perez, the price of tea, etc..)

    Yep, it's sad. The same people who made the materials we put our time and effort into. They also put their time and effort into them.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    There are a couple of lengthy threads on the topic around APUG that are well worth a read - news & opinions & speculation. But in the first instance it's meant the discontinuation of reversal films, and a 15% price rise for everything else :-(

    What it means is that I am currently using my Kodak stock, then buying anything but Kodak.
