    Kodak Does yet another re-org...

    http://www.kodak.com/ek/US/en/Kodak_...ive_Growth.htm

    seems that one division is planning "exploration of other potential initiatives in the consumer space." I wonder if Alaris has to worry?

    What is "commercial film" as differentiated from "motion picture film?" Are there film types they still make that aren't motion picture and aren't destined for KA? Or is "commercial film" in this context something else entirely different than photographic film?

    I would guess film for use in military environment, surveillance, science, aviation photography, industry, printing, circuit board etching, etc.
    This Nikkor lens is so good... that it should be labeled as a Canon lens!

    I suspect the term "commercial film" refers to all photographic film not covered by their contracts with Kodak Alaris.

    For "exploration of other potential initiatives in the consumer space." read, trying to make profit for a change, I hate this pretentious gobbledegook.

    AFAIK Techpan and HIE / Ektachrome Infrared were both originally military / surveillance films that the leftovers got cut up into consumer rolls once the big boys had bought enough.

    Oh dear god, now the "bring back HIE" crowd is going to start all over again...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Commercial films are non-imaging film bases for things like flexible displays.
