    Can't believe this

    A few days ago it was "Film is dead, gone, won't last more than 2 years" from Kodak CEO, and now they are "commited" again

    Either that idiot is compleatly ignorant of what is going on in Kodak, or
    they are all a bunch of liars

    You have to look at the audience the Kodak CEO was talking to. I woudn't get overly upset about his words.

    Interesting release. It sounds like the new Portra 800 is the first of the two electon emulsion still films (like Vision 2 motion picture film). The new base is also good news. I just hope it curls a lot less than the old stuff.

    I loved the fat grain of the old/current 800 film. Pulled 2-3 stops and developed within an inch of not developing anything at all produces as flat, desaturated and grainy an image as anything captured on colour film.

    I wish they'd bring back pro1000.

    Interesting they are using a pro film in single use cameras. Kodak portra films are great.
    art is about managing compromise
