    No. Fuji keeps discontinuing films. We would lose more films and more papers if Fuji were to do this.

    Nope, that isn't going to happen. One, anti-trust. Two, they don't need it. Three, too obvious. It'll be somebody else. Fotokemika is a better bet, but not my pick.
    All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.

    Where do you suppose motion picture film will be made? That business is not on the block, and Kodak has just made committments for the next three years.

    Building 38

    Motion picture film isn't being sold and don't forget about medical imaging film. Surely plenty of that is still coated to be sold through Carestream.

    Nobody said that Kodak was still going to be doing the manufacturing, though. My bets are on them divesting the coating operation and setting up a contract for finished goods at a preferred price like they did with Eastman Gelatin. That operator will have the market on selling the flagship still photography films.

    I'm thinking this is about no less than shedding themselves of the remnants of Kodak Park and, of course, the employees and costs that go with it.

    The other shoe hasn't dropped yet.

    You can readily get other brands of "Xtol in all but name" anyway.

    There's almost nothing sold under the Kodak brand of chemicals any more that isn't available virtually the same elsewhere. The only exception I can think of is HC110.

    Kodak RA-R/T RA-4 chemistry is pretty unique... not completely, but I don't know of a similiar easy-to-get source of something identical... (e.g. Fuji ? who else makes RA-4 chems? Does Champion sell direct? Trebla?)

    Agreed about X-tol though.

    Actually, Roger, Freestyle markets a Legacy Pro brand product, L110, which is a copycat of HC-110. I haven't used it so I can't attest to its worth, but:

    Kodak's executive management has been running the company via dice rolling for quite some time.
