    it means they coat silver halide emulsion... a big step to making a KA film eg a simple c41...

    It is a lot of comfort to me - I much prefer silver halide based colour prints to inkjet based colour prints.

    I made the switch to Ilford when they announced that 8x10 TMY would become a special order item. I'm so glad I did. Kodak matters to me now about as much as Justin Beiber.

    Perhaps by giving some of those EK/KA people who reportedly secretly inhabit these forums an unvarnished look into the mind of an ex-Kodak film customer. And by extension, other ex-Kodak film customers as well.

    If KA is serious about wanting to use film sales to support those pensioners, this is exactly what they need to hear. One can't even begin to think about correcting a problem until one knows what that problem is. Here, one of their ex-customers is telling them exactly what his problem is. The problem that caused him to stop purchasing their 8x10 TMY product and switch to a competitor.

    I've said this before. That sort of market intelligence and feedback is priceless. It, and all of the other concerns raised here (and everywhere else) regarding Kodak-brand film, should be at the top of the agenda for the very next KA brainstorming session about how to increase film sales.

    If, of course, that's a valid part of what KA wants to continue doing.

    It took me a while to realize what the KA in this thread stands for... Seemingly I'm still not used to that new comnpany.

    Nah Ken, Kodak and people who use the products get *nothing* out of hearing the company being compared to Justin Bieber...

    Gotta' think it through a little deeper though, Dan...

    In his post the customer stated what the problem was, why the problem happened, what he did to fix the problem, and the degree of anger the problem caused him. By inference, he also made known what remedial action it might take to regain him as a customer. Couldn't have done much better than that with a paid interviewer conducting a market research survey.

    And it didn't cost anyone a thin dime to acquire that data. Or data from any of the other literally hundreds of Kodak-related "interviews" we have seen on APUG over the course of the last five plus years. And not all of them negative toward Kodak, I hasten to add. It's a veritable gold mine of free customer input, to be ignored at peril. IF your plan is to sell more Kodak film, that is.

    The reference to Bieber was just a case of adjusting the volume control on the anger issue. Sort of like when the survey interviewer asks, "On a scale of 1 to 10, how angry were you?"

    Justin Bieber? That piss-ant little guy the Canadians forced us to take when we lost that hockey game?

    Pretty freakin' angry, the OP was... Yep.

    Somehow I doubt Kodak takes anonymous comments from people who won't give their country, much less their state and city or name, very seriously.

    Kudos to you Ken for being one of the rare exceptions.

    Maybe they, or now KA, should start?

    Or maybe they already do, and we just don't know it? In which case telling posters to stop commenting would actually be hurting the effort to improve film sales??
