    Kodak and the whole Eastman conglomerate has brought around such large scale advances of such a long period of time that we owe them a debt of gratitude for our passion for photography.

    That being said, it is, unfortunately time for some of us to move on as well.
    Thank you.

    Rest In Peace, Kodak. Thanks for my 20,000 Kodachrome slides that still look like new. Thanks for the hundreds of rolls of B&W film and thousands of sheets of paper. Thanks for the technical publications over several decades. Now, Rest In Peace.

    Kodak product that I really love:
    - Kodak TMax 400 - my main film. 80% of everything I shoot in medium format is TMax 400. It is, by far, the most malleable film I know. By changing how I process the film I can get it to do many different things. Changing agitation will help me shape the curve to my liking.
    - Kodak TMax 100 and Plus-X - represents the rest of the b&w film I shoot in medium format. Both are lovely films that I enjoy a lot, especially with pinhole work.
    - Kodak Portra 400NC - pretty much my only medium format color film, and sadly discontinued. But instead of crying about it I will look forward to trying the new Portra 400.
    - Kodak Xtol - my main black and white developer. I use it as replenished and for everything with light hitting the surfaces I photograph directly, it is pretty much unbeatable in my opinion. An outstanding combination of sharpness, grain, acutance, and tonality that suits me perfectly.
    - Kodak HC-110 - my developer of choice for flatly lit scenes. This developer helps bring contrast back to flatly lit scenes in a splendid way. Love how long it stores and how versatile it is with its different dilutions and efficiency.

    All in all I admire Kodak for a great many things they have invented, and somehow continue to put on the market. I am extremely grateful for the, in my mind, superior products you develop and produce.

    I wanted to love Ektachrome years ago.
    But, Kodachrome wasn't falling for that olde trick ...

    Now, I'll have my chance !

    The new Kodak Ektar 100 is about the best thing going in color negative film. If I shot more small format cameras, I'd like Kodak a lot more than I do - as it is, I'm peeved at what they're doing with the availability of Tmax 400 in anything bigger than 4x5.

    Kodak,

    While others fiddled with screen-plates and tri-color cameras, you hired two musicians to develop the world's finest monopack. You revolutionized color printing with your wash-off relief system that evolved into the fabled dye-transfer technique, and well... that was pretty cool.

    You made really only one good camera, the Retina, but with it you hailed the 35mm cannister and that deserves a round on me.

    I thank you for your stifled and sterile pictures of attractive women dressed up as though they were 20 years older, all in an effort to convince me that I, a simple hobbyist, could probably convince women to pose in front of my camera, maybe even naked someday. (Think 50's Kodak catalogs).

    You made those great "Kodak Handbooks" with examples of all your papers and a big stupid picture of a baby on Velour, Super Velour, Super Velourmax, Rippled Velour, and so on. Some examples in those books are now showing signs of improper fixation, but some are not!

    Your name's for products are absolutely ridiculous, and you seem to reuse them over, and over, and over, and over again, as if clinging tightly to your beloved trademarks. I respect commitment. But with this tendecy, you have created a new vernacular where words like Ektar, Estar, Ekta-, Dektol, and Selectol-Soft flourish and yet give way just as effortlessly to robotic code like D-19, D-76, HC-110 and TMAX. I feel like an artist and a technician.

    Kodak, don't go changing,

    Sincerely,

    Chris
