    I do what I can to encourage film use. My son loves projecting slides. In that respect he's like me. Sadly, Kodak no longer makes transparency film. So he and I are Fuji shooters. Back in the day, if it wasn't Kodak, I didn't look twice at it.

    My daughter took a few pictures with my son's camera and liked it, so I think I will get her a film SLR for her birthday. She likes both B&W and color, but doesn't want to shoot slides, so I'll be picking up some print film for her. Probably T-Max, and some Kodak color negative. So she will be the Kodak shooter more than likely.

    Earlier I said I didn't shoot any Kodak. That's not entirely true. The occasional roll of B&W is Kodak, and I do shoot digital on a Kodak P&S. The cameras just seem to behave more predictably than other brands of digital P&Ses (the exception being the one Pentax digisnapper I had - that was a sweet camera for a P&S).

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    @Pioneer,
    I know what you mean about rationing the film and it being like Christmas every week. Even though we send ours out to a lab instead of processing it ourselves, we still like getting the slides back and tossing them in the projector for the very first time.

    I think it matters - from our point of view - because if film products had their own division it would be easier for a prospective buyer to figure out how profitable/not profitable film production is at Kodak.

    Splitting film products into several divisions makes the sale - refinancing etc. of each division easier to understand for a prospective buyer/financier but not the "film and film related products" per se.

    That also works in case of liquidation. If film were a separate entity and were profitable it would be easier to find a buyer in case of liquidation.

    That could happen (if a company from China buys the camera part of Kodak).

    I grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan - the home of the Argus camera. Argus went belly up after being purchased by Sylvania in the late 1950's. Many years later - in the early 1990's If I remember correctly - I saw an Argus Camera booth at the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) Trade Show with a nice display of old Argus products and a bunch of new low-end 'stuff'. Argus Camera is now a holding company out of Illinois bringing in low end products from Asia. It amuses me to see them still claim the Argus heritage http://www.arguscamera.com/history/index.html

    This is what I fear will happen to Kodak.

    I agree with you 100%...they would love it and the the profit would flow in. LOMO is focused now on being very fun which is super. For those who wish to take it to the next level I like to see it as a "gateway drug" into still fun but serious film shooting.. My concern is it will turn out to be a fad...
