    I think its worth noting, that Efke was the only manufacturer who produced what would be considered a "true" IR film. Kodak abandoned us years ago. Don't forget that this is the same kodak that eliminated their E-6 line, and is trying to sell off their film division, even though its a money maker.

    Right now, I am not a Kodak fan.

    Kodak is NOT selling the film division AFAIK. Parts of EK have been sold and the name Kodak can now be licensed for imaging products... etc.

    I just searched the database of Kodak news for any changes.

    IIRC (PE, please correct me if I'm wrong) Kodak is looking to sell the marketing-of-still-film division to a third party. They would retain the manufacturing of the film but it would be marketed by someone else.

    Shoot more film.

    IIRC the sale of part of the film business was a consequence of the difficulties in finding a buyer for the patent portfolio.

    Now that the patent portfolio has been sold it might be that there is no more any necessity to sell part of the film business, as planned.

    As far as my database shows, they have not sold, nor do they plan on selling the film business.

    But, that said, there is still a lot of volatility there.

    At the rate Kodak is abandoning film products there won't be any 'film business' left to sell.

    Seems to me that some other companies have done this too. After all, what is this thread about?

    They're hardly abandoning film at all. What they've done is put their best foot forward. They've got
    their finest, most versatile color neg and b&w films ever. Maybe not as big a selection as in the old
    days - but financial common sense favors reengineering toward greater versatility and less redundancy. Yeah, some people are disappointed that they stopped making chrome film; but they do have to pick and choose which battles they can realistically win. I'd far rather see a sustainable
    small selection of really good film than an unustainable big selection of it.

    As I understand it, the Film Business (excluding the Motion Picture Film business) is included in the "Personalized Imaging" business referred to in these two press releases:

    http://www.kodak.com/ek/US/en/Kodak_..._Emergence.htm

    and

    http://www.kodak.com/ek/US/en/Kodak_...uring_Plan.htm

    It doesn't include the actual manufacture of the film - just the marketing.

    I can't put my hands on the original announcement at this time.
