    You only make a perishable while you are going to sell enough of it to make a profit.

    EKs manufacture is sized for larger volumes than currently... the coating machine may be on 20% or less EK could stop any time they have a breakdown.

    KAs manufacture has not done film for a while.

    The last Ilford colour I used was in '65. I liked it but they stopped.

    I've two fridges with very little food in them.

    Forma, Ilford, Adox, Lucky and Orwo are making nice mono?

    Most of us think monochrome is safe, at least in the most popular sizes (35mm, 120, 4x5 and 8x10 at least.) I think it could go on even without Ilford but we all hope that is never necessary. It's color that's really in danger.

    If any of the Kodak loser idiots are reading this understand, I will buy and use Kodak color film as long as you produce it and sell it. But I'm not going to pay insane money for it and I'm past worrying about whether Kodak survives. I'm not insane enough to care more about your company than you, yourselves do.
    I have to agree with you entirely. I use color and B&W, and will continue to use color while it lasts.

    In the meantime, I'll certainly try Ferrania if and when it appears, and, if it's decent, will support them 100%, they'll deserve it! For B&W I'm now 100% Ilford, again they deserve our support.

    Never thought I'd say it, but I actually don't need Kodak now for anything, not even their cheap Chinese-made batteries. Which, thinking about it, is the only Kodak product I've seen anywhere for many months.

    KA's claims of wanting to be innovative are contradicted by their claim that "no improvements are necessary" (to the existing film portfolio)

    Here are the details:

    RG: Appreciate the question, Peter. My passions include driving long-term growth by way of innovation, empowerment, and accountability. And those passions are behind everything I want to do for Kodak Alaris and our customers to enable success for all.

    Samuel Davis: Is research and development into new/improved emulsions continuing, or is Kodak Alaris sticking to the emulsions it already has?

    RG:Our current product portfolio delivers the very best films available in the world today. In fact, these are the best films that the company has ever produced. No improvements are necessary.

    Ilford makes a very good one though, and it's available in 120. Love me some Delta 3200 and I shoot a LOT of it.
    I've got a brick of Delta 3200 and a liter of DD-X and priority number 1 is getting to know this film developer combination.

    That's a case where the "truth" slipped out. I bet he wishes he could recall that line. KA has no interest in promoting film for the future.

    Film companies, camera companies and camera retailers all missed opportunities by jumping on the digital bandwagon. Selling digital stuff was easy. The entire industry decided to take a stand and promote only digital. Selling digital stuff was easy. The internet came along and now digital prevails, customers no longer need to visit the store to buy film, have it developed, buy prints or browse the other merchandise while they're there. Kodak is no longer one of the thirty DJI companies. Film and digital photography could have been actively promoted at the same time, much like sporting goods stores promote golf and softball at the same time. Many many people are interested in both at the same time.

    Sorry, I really don't understand the constant repetition of this "Kodak needs to be on APUG" thing. To what end? What exactly will that do? Get 2 more people already using film to try some Tri-X, and then say it sucks because they developed it in urinol and used 20 year old fixer? Or are you expecting it to help Kodak when the wackjobs start bugging them for special orders and other idiot ideas?

    Enough of this. They currently offer a selection of the finest films and chemicals. Just use them if you like them.
