    My dentist, who likes and embraces new technology, complains that the new digital X-ray pictures are more difficult to read.
    There is no question, however, that once the initial investment in equipment is done, running costs are lower, and profit is higher.

    I tried to post last night and hopefully it gets cleared - so I'm sorry for the lag. I'm Colleen Krenzer and I work with the PR agency for Kodak's film and paper business and will try to answer questions people have as this process moves forward. All the still photography films are part of the sale. When Kodak says commercial films, it means films that are used in things like aerial, industrial and printed circuit boards.

    That said, manufacturing on all products continues, including those ones included in the proposed sale.

    Mine did too, until he bought new monitors.

    Welcome, Colleen.
    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.

    Welcome to APUG. Glad to see you took Dan's suggestion. The people over here are a tougher audience, but by and large they mean well. Thanks in advance for any additional clarity you may be able to bring to this situation. The more facts people have, the less rampant and unfounded speculation there will be.

    High end monitors at that. But whatever. Let's talk about Kodak.

    Thanks for what? We've been asking questions for at least 10 years with absolutely no communication from kodak. Very simole things such as "why does kodak give erroneous hc110 development times for trix a d plusx", causing hundreds of underdevrloped films and hundreds of lost hours testing and searching the net for a right answer. And that was only a simple question.

    Now that the fish is dead and badly stinking you finally appear? For what exactly? To inform us on the sale?

    This is hypocrisy at the highest degree. Kodak is decidedly dedicated to ridicule its customers 'til the last second. That's how I see it.

    Thank you for posting here, Colleen! And welcome to APUG. I really want to applaud your effort to come here and speak on behalf of Kodak. It has long been a sore point with many members here, that while Ilford and ADOX openly communicate to the forums, we got silence from Kodak. Perhaps we overestimated our importance, but all the same it's wonderful to get quality inside information. Thank you!

    Nice way to welcome someone who is trying to give us solid information about what's going on.
