    Reality check time.

    At this point, there is no assurance that Kodak will actually be able to successfully exit bankruptcy.

    It's pretty much a yard sale at the moment.

    I wish Kodak would come clean and make a clear, non-conflicting statement about exactly what it is keeping and what it is selling.

    There have been no analog Kodak paper products except color since 2005.

    Yes, I know. I was a fan of the Polycontrast III RC paper and the Polymax Fine Art fiber paper back when it was available. And Azo. I bought a lot of Azo and still have 700 or so sheets. But it's the RA4 Endura paper I'm referring to here. Isn't that part of the Personal Imaging division?

    Just to pass on a story from cinematography .com.

    if true, that would probably make it hard to get any e-6 film.

    I hope some of our "folks on the ground" can get some confirmed info.

    This will have a profound effect on Kodak's MP business. Fuji's percentage may move to EK thus boosting income and profit.

    Any chance of Kodak bringing back E6 if Fuji completely drops it?

    I suppose not. Sigh.

    Wow....with Fujifilm getting out of motion picture film, how much longer can their still photography film survive? I read a lot here that still is subsidized by movie film. Is the end of film in sight over at Fujifilm? This really is a terrible loss.

    If Fuji announces (or leaks) that they are going to stop motion picture film, and not that their are going to stop production of all films, it should mean that they can economically manufacture still film without necessarily manufacturing motion picture film as well.

    Actually that would mean that if still film consumption remains flat in the future, still film production could continue "forever" without the motion picture crutch to sustain it.

    Maybe still film price will increase, considering a share of common costs will not be sustained by MP film.
