    So Perez's great idea is done. Full circle. Now can they get rid of him please?
    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.

    Selling the ink for the existing printers can't seem to offer much for the future...what's the expected life of a typical desktop printer, perhaps 3 or 4 years?

    And it's after, apparently, spending a whole lot of money here in the UK on advertising the printers on TV, etc., even as recently as earlier this month.

    How about the software (drivers) going obsolete if the OS is upgraded?

    Kodak to quit making its desktop inkjet printers

    PE, that's exactly what happened with my Kodak dye-sublimation printer. It will only run on one version of Windows (XP), so now I have a rather large paperweight.

    Doesn't necessarily work....I have an older, but perfectly servicable, Canon inkjet with no driver for 64-bit Windows 7, which will not work with the XP emulation on 7 (confirmed by Canon UK). Not much chance of Kodak providing new drivers a few years down the line, if Canon doesn't?

    But definitely worth looking into if Terry hasn't already done so. My brother runs one of the Nikon 35mm film scanners using an XP VM running in a partition on a Mac. You never know until you try.

    This afternoon I was out shopping in one of our awful US-style shpping estates, think PC World, Staples, Supermarkets etc.

    I was actually after office firniture but the stores sold Inkjet papers, where once they'd had very good ranges now it was crap or Kodak, so now what happens ?

    Staples used to sell a very good range now just Kodak or own brand which is awful, they used to sell Fuji and Ilford (the swiss stuff) and a lot of it as well.

    So if Kodak ditch Inkjet is that papers as well, and taht is the end of Perez surely, he's not made it work.

    I quiet liked their Inkjet printers in fact they were not bad at all. I know a few photographers who use Kodak printers and they are fond of them and prefer them to similar printers from HP

    Getting rid of stink-jet printers is a positive move. Concentrate on C-41 and black & white film.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
