    This is the open letter from Kodak Alaris to all Lomographers:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Kodak-Alaris-Lomo-letter.jpg 
Views:	27 
Size:	263.9 KB 
ID:	76979 (click here to download the letter as a PDF file)

    It says that Alaris are committed to:
    - "trusted and beloved Kodak-still-camera film products", and:
    - "the widest range of traditional photographic paper and workflow solutions for labs".
    It also says:
    "More importantly, we will continue to offer the full portfolio of photographic films and papers." It then mentions Portra films, Tri-X and Endura Metallic paper.

    Whatever I think of Lomography (as a company), I'm glad that these Kodak products will still be around.

    BTW
    About the "Kodak Alaris and Lomography Partner Up" statement. It looks like that the new "Kodak Alaris Company" is the successor of the "Eastman Kodak Company" for the manufacturing of film and paper and that Lomography agreed to sell these products through their channels. So it is probably not a real joint venture or something and the Kodak films and papers should be available through other sources as well, thus keeping the prices from rising to Lomo levels.

    Last evening I read in a BJP posting that the Lomochrome Purple film was actually a new production run of Kodak Aerochrome, which had been out of production for some time. This is something I want to see. An occasional (maybe smaller) run of the lower popularity films. They'd make a batch once per year or even every other year. Buy when available or you miss out. Understand that a certain amount of pre-orders might be required.

    Without going into excited overdrive, one thing to keep in the back of your mind is that the Lomo folks seem to like slide films. I seriously doubt that we'd see a Kodachrome resurrection, but they might partner up and do a run of, say, E100G if it was financed by pre-orders and there was a reasonable hope of selling all of it.

    Time will tell!
    All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.

    Given how the Kodak thread went, I'd expect apug users to chant for lomo partnership too, at least I'd if it can keep more films in production!

    See these statements from a interview with Lars Fielder, Product Marketing Director at Kodak Alaris:

    Are there any plans for Kodak to release any new films? As mentioned before, I believe that the key message to all those film shooters out there is that the full range of photographic films continues to be available. In addition to that, we do run a program that offers the possibility to order large format sized sheet film items on a special order basis. These are being offered via selective partners, e.g. K.B. Cenham Cameras in the US or GFH-Foto in Germany. More details can be found on http://www.kodakalaris.com/go/professional
    and
    Are there any plans to bring back previously discontinued films? Again, it is key for all film lovers that there are no immediate changes planned to our portfolio of photographic films. That said, all decisions to discontinue films in the past were driven by changes in user preferences and or the digital substitution, resulting in the demand of these specific films dropping off a cliff which made it unsustainable to keep them unfortunately. All of these films were old emulsions. At the same time, we have continued to optimize many films in our portfolio and added innovative new ones, like the EKTAR 100.

    I think this is great news. Lomo has been the smartest marketer in the photo world for the last 10 years. Say what you will about the products but they know how to sell. Good move.
