    If you are talking about the 35mm processor, Polaroid was loaning them at first, then selling them, and practically giving them away later. I still have some film in unused condition... any offers?

    I wonder if the lining will ever be silvery enough for Kodak to bring back B&W paper?

    Quote from Forbes

    "The one silver lining is that Kodak will continue producing color and black-and-white film, news that should make traditional photographers happy."

    I am very happy

    My experience too. I tried to set one up for a relative, and it was seriously not "easyshare"! As much as I like their film, if I were in the market for a digitoy, they'd be at the bottom of the list.

    I would certainly want to have the polaroid 35mm and processor but I am wondering they are still usable and really don't know what to offer.

    Prisms are static and powerful, more than any sensor at relaying 100% Dr with no latency. Mirrors are a decades-old sunk cost, so have no R&D run-up.
    Sure, if you're willing to spend 3 large+ for the D800 or 6 large for the D4. The finder on the D7000 is just barely passable. Most dslrs use cheap, dim penta-mirrors, not heavier, pricier glass prism finders.The Sony EVF on the NEX 7 and tack-on OLED finder for the NEX5n are great for anyone not shooting fast action. Mirrorless cameras are also tiny compared to the bulk of a dslr.

    There was quite a disagreement a few days ago with one person arguing strongly that film was NOT profitable, and here we have the proof that he was wrong wrong wrong. Kodak will apparently stay in the film business fir a kibg tune,

    In fact, I think that the film division represents a major portion of the Kodak land ownership and personnel. However, to answer another question, I doubt if they would ever bring back B&W paper, as the entire plant has been demolished. It is like being in a time machine running backwards and looking at Kodak Park implode.

    It brings money in the front door. They need that so probably quite a while. The Christmas bonus for the CEO has to come from somewhere, right?
