    I care!! I'll use TXP320 until someone stops making it (and then I'll use Ilford HP5+) because the negatives I'm seeing these days are 'just so', and every time a film/chemical etc. is stopped I have to 're-tune'. The quality of Kodak film has been awesome (although now I'm using Fuji Acros instead of Plus-X - that's pretty awesome too!)

    In summary: mixed emotions...

    Now watch the people at rff thanking the kodak rep for the excellent communication congratulating Kodak for the great efforts in keeping us informed.

    LOL

    When APUGgers unite and buy up all the Kodak film and put it in the freezers, do they become the biggest hoarder group on the planet for the Kodak film?

    We are not beating hoarders, instead we are becoming hoarders ourselves .

    All - sorry I didn't post here as well (I posted on RFF). I work with Kodak's PR agency and my name is Colleen Krenzer. I'll post here what I posted to the RFF site as I do want to have the same information out there. I will caveat this with the process was just initiated today, I work specifically with the film and paper groups and as such, am not involved in the corporate area and therefore, am not privy to all the latest information. That said, I will try my best.

    Today, the company announced that is initiating the sales processes for the Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging businesses, which include the still film and P&OS businesses. Some key points.

    1. Kodak will continue to manufacture all its products during this time.
    2. As Kodak moves forward with the potential transition of these businesses to new ownership, it will ensure that customers continue to have the same products, services and support that they currently receive from Kodak.
    3. As it has done with previous businesses that it has sold (e.g. Carestream), Kodak will ensure that the potential buyers shares its commitment to serving customers.

    As much as I can, I will share updates with you, on behalf of the company. http://www.businesswire.com/news/hom...sful-Emergence

    So they are selling off the remaining flagship products and keeping movie, graphic arts and x-ray film? Guess that tells us where the money is. Don't forget about x-ray films - millions of dollars there.

    (AFAIK, they still coat the x-ray film that is then sold by Carestream.)
    All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.

    I'd bet they could but they already have the all tools they need to make film.

    The only value I see for Fujifilm in buying Kodak's film division is to own the color film market outright.

    It seems to me that at least for color film that could easily become a reality, even if they didn't buy Kodak.
