    Those statements do not hint at the future development of the cine print-film market that is decreasing.

    Probably, for once, a balanced report by Kodak. We all know what's happening with the movie industry's change to digital....nothing we say will change that, but at least Kodak is securing the remianing business, which can only be good news.

    We should not forget that for colour release films only two manufacturers remain: Agfa and Kodak
    There still may be stocks of Fuji film around though.

    Promising news...yes! However, I take some of this news with a grain of salt.
    There were earlier articles of Kodak's new 'asset protection' or archival film.

    http://www.engadget.com/2012/08/27/k...otection-film/

    It would be interesting to know just how many feet of film, (of the billions of feet mentioned),
    will be film for 'initial capture' or the new 'archival film.' As mentioned in (post #7 above), though,
    production of any type of film at Kodak will help in keeping more of the coating machines running.

    I think archival, in the end, will win. It's much easier to store a reel of film than some sort of digital copy over the longhaul.

    I was talking with a technologist at Disney, where they are archiving by digitally generating a colour separation, then printing to B&W film - but this is not enough film to keep the industry afloat. When films were distributed as film rather than bits, tens of thousands of copies of the film would be made, now for archival purposes it will be a handful.
