    Kodak sell printer/scanners but they don't scan film. This always surprised me. I'd have thought a decent film scanner would have been a good idea.

    lots of cameras available

    There are MANY options for 35mm available. I thought a couple years back that Kodak was going to sell a Kodak branded Vivitar 35mm, but I think the bankruptcy put the nix on that.

    Look for the Leica MP and M7, Nikon F6, FM10, FE10, Vivitar V3800-50, Voigtländer Bessa series, and Zeiss Ikon, low end Promaster, and I am sure there are other 35mm cameras, but all of these are current 2012 35mm cameras available right now.

    For Medium format, there are even more options, remember that even the Mamiya RB series is still being produced.

    But he can't quit yet- his work is not finished. Kodak is still breathing.

    I sure don't know what they can do.
    Firing the CEO would be a start.
    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.

    Ilford had a stroke of genius by introducing the Titan and selling it with a bag of goodies i.e. paper/film. Now it's gotten so popular they introduced 8x10 version at Photokina. There are ways to get out of the hole and get film in people's hands, you just have to stop thinking like the old Kodak CEOs do who are trying to play catch up with the rest of the world.

    Any new film camera is a step forward, particularly these because they may introduce new people to film and get them hooked.

    So that's great news Simon.

    Kodak DID sell prosumer film scanners: the RFS 2035, RFS 2035 Plus and RFS 3570. The original RFS 2035 came out in the very early 1990's (and was one of the digital products I worked on).

    If Kodak had continued to work on scanners, I would be willing to bet that the state of the art in prosumer scanning would be much more advanced than it is now.

    Isn't the XP2 Super single use a revival of something Ilford had 10-12 years ago? A welcome break from grainy color.

    These dozen words give voice to my most fundamental frustration regarding Kodak over the last five years. Not just limited to film. But everything. And I've been repeatedly thrashed for even bringing it up.

    Everyone else who has survived—or been resurrected from the dead—has found new and different ways to move forward.* But for some reason all one ever hears from anyone connected with Kodak is "that can't happen."

    Why the hell NOT???

    I've never seen a more paralyzed organization in my life. The UN is lightning quick by comparison.

    * Impossible Project, Jobo film processors, Aristo replacement tubes, APX film, MCC paper, Lodima paper, Ilford pinhole cameras and accessories, Ilford postcard paper, Leica, Holga, Cosina, all of those toy camera Lomo products, and on and on...
