    Film is not part of this sale and almost all B&W is considered Commercial Film:

    Kodak noted that in addition to the commercial, packaging and functional printing and enterprise services businesses, it also continues to own and operate the Consumer Inkjet, Entertainment Imaging, Commercial Film and Specialty Chemicals businesses, given the company’s expertise, capabilities and strong customer relationships in these markets, as well as their combined cash-generating capability.

    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    So why is Kodak Professional on Facebook saying the opposite?

    "Kodak Professional: Yes, the full still film line, including PORTRA, EKTAR and TRI-X falls within the Personal Imaging Business."

    What do you make of this part of the same article you linked to, Kevin, in particular the part I emphasized?

    The Personalized Imaging business consists of Retail Systems Solutions (RSS), Paper & Output Systems (P&OS) and Event Imaging Solutions (EIS). RSS is the worldwide leader in retail print solutions with a global footprint of 105,000 KODAK Picture Kiosks; P&OS includes the broadest portfolio of traditional photographic paper and still camera film products; and EIS provides souvenir photo products at theme parks and other venues. The Document Imaging business provides a leading and comprehensive portfolio of scanners, capture software and services to enterprise customers.
    Which traditional paper and still film products are referred to? I would think that B&W would be part of that.

    I figured the commercial film products referred to movie film. I'd be happy for some clarification.

    Doest sound like they will keep still film

    From the Business Wire article:
    Accordingly, the company has initiated sale processes for its market-leading Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging businesses.

    This post by Kodak film and paper PR rep Colleen Krenzer on RFF is aimed squarely at the still film user:

    Oh well..I got plenty of Tri-X, but honestly, I am a lot more preoccupied about what and when to shoot, than what to shoot it with.

    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.

    I'm taking a wait and see approach. If a group a lot like Harman comes to the surface and makes a decent offer for Kodak's "still photography" division and makes a go of it. It might not bad in the end.

    I like shooting with Tri-x, Ektar100 and Portra 400 but I'm also comfortable shooting with HP5, FP4, Delta 100, Neopan Acros 100, Reala 100 and Fuji 400H. The only concern I have is replacing Dektol as my print developer and for now I don't see the point of panicking just yet.
