It's a corporate business, not a 'grass roots' specialist company like Ilford - with whom it's not too much to expect a little communication. People 'waste' their time with Kodak because the products are exceptional and I feel that needs to be emphasised. If you want better communication with the people connected to your media, probably best to take up painting and hang around at your local crafts store! Would you refuse to pay for your meal without first speaking to the chef?

    Technically speaking... all that is just as true if someone buys and moves it "offshore".

    I can read it now, my dream: Formulary and Freestyle form a consortium that buys the rights to Kodak still film, the consortium hires Ron has their head of Ops!

    Glad to see Kodak finally has a rep. on here. A hearty midwest welcome to her!

    Unfortunately, Kodak lost most of my business when they dropped E-6, as I am primarily a slide shooter. They do have some nice negative films. The colors for those are great for printing and scanning but all wrong for projection

    I do shoot B&W now and then (but it's pretty infrequently) and for that Tri-X works pretty well so I hope that stays around. My daughter is getting into film shooting though so I'm gonna pick up some Kodak for her to use. Just gotta wait until payday...
    ME Super

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

    Please re-read my post. I wasn't badmouthing Kodak.
    (But not too sure why you believe Kodak should be excused from communicating with it's customers because it's a "corporate" business?)
    And I wasn't saying that people were wasting time with Kodak
    products...of course they're "exceptional", we don't need to be told that!! (I started with a Brownie Cresta, Verichrome Pan, and Velox paper!).
    But maybe now is the time to start getting used to the exceptional products made by the other, last few. manufacturers...support them and maybe there will be a better chance of a few more years....

    Please just stop.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Just that Kodak film is simply a mass produced product, not bespoke furniture. More Ikea than the town carpenter who we might bump into at the shop.

    I agree that people should support Ilford, but not just because we can speak to someone who works there. This isn't a reason to stop shooting Kodak. If only I could stop smoking because Richmond don't talk to me! Now that someone from Kodak is here it just looks like children sulking and feet stomping in front of their parents. As adults maybe we should try to reason with Colleen and get some much needed information.

    I'm really satisfied with the quality of care provided by my dentist of 33 years, who engages in digital dentistry. He's always used all his fingers when working on my teeth.
