Where do you suppose motion picture film will be made?
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.
All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.
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?)
