    Technical Pan anyone?

    I was an avid user of Tech Pan developing it in Technidol Liquid. My was the grain ultra fine! I really miss the stuff. I hear that someone else is making it now, though. I also loved Elite paper.

    Recently I have felt kodak has been coming under fire and that it might not be feeling very loved. So this thread is for all of us to say something positive about kodak.

    I would like to thank Kodak for all their research and development which has delivered us unsurpassed analog products for the past century. Your hard work
    has helped other analog photographic companies improve their products.
    Your products have and continue to make wonderful images. Especially big thanks
    for making EIR and HIE two of my personal favorite films and also Bravo on
    the creation of product S0-339 !!!

    I know it might be a hard time to be in the photographic industry and that sometimes in the heat of the moment people may say mean things about you. But you have given us all so much and we do appreciate it.

    Love

    ~Frizza


    So that's my thoughts I encourage you all to take a moment and reflect on the awesomeness of kodaks achievement and give them some of the warm fuzzy love we have all been holding back on for so long.

    And when you do, sell it to someone who not only cares but also continues research and production. Not to accountants and lawyers who only care about their salary incentives!

    Heard something on the radio this morning that was interesting. Suggested that fixing the system was easy. Essentially no more company stock for managers, period.

    The premise was essentially that paying managers with stock, is like having athletes bet on the games they play in. Simply a perverse incentive.

    Hmm, but they're just playing the same game the board of directors and shareholders want them to play!

    One point that was made was that the stock incentive is that the managers incentive is to get in (bet), make a bunch quick (fix the game) and sell out before it blows up in their face.

    This gaming of the system isn't in the interest of the stockholders or board or anyone else.

    That sounds like insider trading... anytime managers know something that no one else outside the company knows, they aren't allowed to trade. I know, I'm a manager and am considered senior insider where I work and I'm often in blackout from trading. Gaming the system wouldn't work for me unless I cheated and broke the law.

    It is like butter. It bears about zero resemblance to its "classic" former self; it is incredibly low in grain even in 8x enlargements. However, it is a great film! THANKS, KODAK!

    That's a link to the summary.

    And the radio interview. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/p00fvjym

    Don't know how long that link will work.
