    Kodak does not have the cachet it used to have. Even my generation mainly remembers Kodak cameras as plastic Instamatics and Disc cameras, not as a maker of high quality items the way Canon, Nikon, etc. are.
    When i was young, any camera was referred to as a "Kodak". We had friends who had a Nikon Kodak. Times have really changed, but I hope we will still be able to buy quality films branded with the Kodak name for years to come.

    Same here. I have never found a defect on any Kodak film. My film of choice when they make what I need.
    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.

    They (Kodak) must also resolve outstanding issues with retirees in England

    So for our purposes, nothing has changed. The fate of the personalized imaging division is what's paramount for analog photographers.

    Except...

    If there plan to emerge from bankruptcy and continue to manufacture the film and paper is successful, then at least that source of high quality manufacturing will remain.

    That model is interesting - certainly it appears to in part be what Harman/Ilford is doing. I wonder what percentage of Harman/Ilford's manufactured output is not branded either Ilford or Kentmere?

    Maybe they'll make Perez's exit a requirement for the deal.

    I suppose it's reasonable for the head of a large company to have his own entrance and exit!

    I don't know why they would keep Perez.
    What has he done to make anyone want to keep him? He's ridden along with the company as it spiraled down into bankruptcy, for most of that time assuring everyone that the company was ready to turn around. So why would anyone put faith in anything he says? I mean, looking at it rationally, not emotionally: is he the guy to trust now? If I were a potential investor I would not be inclined to put my faith in him.
    I am really baffled as to why he has lasted this long.
    Oh, well. What do I know? I'm just a guy who always had to perform well in my job to keep it.

    Probably someone would because "you push the button and they do the rest". Depends on tastes
