    I'm ready to buy today...

    * These are lifetime favorites. Since I was a teenager. I'm now nearing retirement...
    Yes, Plus-X my fav by a long shot. So happy I have a nice stock of 120 and bulk 35mm in my freezer.

    This would appear to be the case, given the eventually successful outcome. And the fact that my darkroom is now full of Ilford-branded products.

    I always had the feeling with Kodak that a decision was taken to transition to digital technologies. So they started building a bridge from the analog to the digital side of the river. Then, for each two planks Perez had them tear up behind them, he had them lay down one plank in front of them...

    It does indeed boil down to executive leadership.

    Strive is an apt word as it means to compete You might be misinterpreting its meaning.

    The most important part is the new company will have backing from those that support it rather than a CEO and board who just milked it and squandered the profits.

    Let's hope this is the beginning of a great future for Kodak film. Time to buy another brick of Tri-X and go out and shoot plenty.

    You hit the nail square on the head with this one. This will be the difference between thriving and dying.
    “You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt

    I have to say I am getting rather excited at what might now be possible in marketing Kodak films. My gut instinct is that this is a good thing....

John's dedication, talent and enthusiasm proved to be one of the best experiences in my 23 year career as a photographer as I watched him print masterfully seen, shot and developed Tmax films onto silver gelatin papers.
    I'd like to second that. I had the pleasure of attending John's other workshop, the "Fine Tuning" one, three weeks ago, and I would also like to thank Kodak for sponsoring it. I have mailed a thank you letter to Rochester, but PKM-25's idea of sharing this with you, Coleen, and with others, is a fine one. Thanks for sharing the Kodak news here.

    I believe we have the post of the year, right here! Sean, I think you can lock the forum as nothing else really matters!

    Obviously, considering where it was all at 12 months ago, this can only be good news.

    More like they moved the chairs to the Lusitania.
