    Thom Hogan on Kodak

    The most recent essay by Thom Hogan covers Kodak and the future of film. Worth a read if you have not seen it.

    Rather gloomy and negative (no pun intended) in outlook towards the future of film. Expert though he is, it's only opinion, not hard fact. I believe that Thom Hogan went fully digital in his own photography some years ago, so he would likely have both feet planted firmly in the "film is dead" camp.

    Sorry but this article is very biased in my opinion and it seems to me that Thom Hogan is Nikon's Voice in the Net and Nikon is pretty much a digital company these days. Though he does have some points, unfortunately.

    As great as the (film) products may be, bottom line is, and always has been..Kodak is a bad company.

    Why is kodak a bad company it does have bad managers but as a company I don't think they are bad, even though they have finacial problems they still sponsor Student Filmmakers and give discounts to indie productions, they've helped the GEH and did many a good deed. Some of them tax deductible but still I don't think that Kodak is an amoral company at least compared to other companies.

    Hogan is NOT Nikon's voice. That view is wrong. Hogan rips Nikon all the time. He is a Nikon fan yes, but voice? Not even close.

    Actually, Thom Hogan thinks that film will survive, just like vinyl records (like the audiophile niche). That is very unlike the film is dead group who think that film has no chance at all for survival.

    No news here. Just a firm grasp of the obvious. Thom also needs a site makeover--badly.

    No mention of Harman in that article. It is as if Kodak will certainly fail and cease production of film and that will leave Fuji who will continue a while longer but the future even there is uncertain and he may be right. However in the B&W game Harman remains a major player and I am surprised that he makes no mention of it despite the U.S. ,where he is based, furnishing Harman with its major single market.
