    As long as they still make TMAX and Tri-X, we're good!

    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    It ran what may have been an expensive TV advertising campaign here in the U.K. as recently as a few weeks ago. It's theme was how much less ink Kodak printers use. Now they are no more, it seems.

    There comes a point when this form of short-termism suggests panic and clutching at straws.

    Acutally, Perez mentioned this about 2 months ago and it was brought up here on APUG, but was dismissed then as improbably due to their announced strategy. Basically, what Perez wants is a move to the high end, high capacity printers for POD shops. The problem is that the ink set for these high end printers is not all that good. They have a high degree of metamerism and thus the prints shift color with illuminant.

    If they don't fix that, they are going to fail in their last line of business in the digital side.

    Article says they still do, until sometime next year anyway. Point is I really had no idea. If someone asked me I'd say...."Hmmm, not sure, maybe?" That could be part of their problem.

    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.
