    According to Kodak's trademark of the original "C", this is only applicable to analog chromogenic materials.

    BTW, David, I hope to see you in NYC.

    I've had a print on Endura from a Fuji Frontier machine--would this qualify as a "C" print by this standard?

    Well, technically, since it was an EK trademark since the 50s, but then was abandoned in the 70s, IDK.

    I would suspect that it is an 'urban trademark' or some such now. It really as no current contextual meaing AFAIK. People use it indiscriminately without regard for the original meaning from what I can determine.

    Some minilabs use completely different technologies. A CVS drug store up the street from me uses something that I suspect is an inkjet or similar technology. Certainly it produces ugly, streaky results just like my desktop inkjet printer. When I want quick 4x6-inch prints, I go further, to the local Walgreens, which uses a Fuji Frontier that produces much better results.
