    Yes Fred, I know that too. In fact, when marketing changed Blix to Bleach Fix, a marketing guy called me to tell me that they all agreed that Blix sounded like a toothpaste name designed for small children. I just about popped a button on that one.

    On the contrary, he was very voluable in late 2011 interviews about Kodak and film, though never gave out anything concrete to the media about production figures. We all know what happened in January 2012.

    Well, there are things he might say in an interview and things he might say off the record. I know that is true from my own work experience at EK.

    The Titanic disaster happened 100 years ago and we are still very much aware of it (as opposed to many other things that many have been around in 1912). Perhaps the same will be true of Kodak in 2112?

    I don't mean this as a slant against Kodak at all, but if Kodak disappeared, we'd have Velvia and Reala and Superia and Provia and Neopan and Acros and all the wonderful Ilford films, not to mention the niche players like Efke and Foma. The film world would be hurt (I'd sorely miss Ektar 100, for example, just like I already miss Plus-X) but the world would soldier on.

    I don't fear Kodak's demise, particularly; I do fear the day when we might lose our last C41 or E6 film. I think black and white film will be available for a considerable time yet, but I'm not so sure about E6.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Normally I would say that this news represents a good short selling opportunity of their stock, but at a price of $0.28/share maybe not so much.
