    2012

    Any thoughts on surprising or new photographic revelations that 2012 may bring?

    Film resurgence overtakes the market and Kodak, Ilford , and Fuji announce expansion plans?

    Ok, maybe that's too optimistic.

    The camera catches light. The photographer catches life.

    Kodak as we've know it vanishes. Kodak 2.0 emerges and produces only film materials. Or not.

    PE is hired back at Kodak after a massive shake up, divests the digital arm, and purchases Lomo as a means by which to connect with a younger generation; whilst bear hugging its loyal film shooters by offering full lines of B/W papers (ie Ekatalure to compete against Art 300), begins producing film cameras....

    If Kodak ceases to make film, all I can say is that I hope Ilford ends up with the right to produce T-Max. As much as I love Ilford films, Delta is much less to my liking than T-Max.

    Clearly nothing is certain when lawyers get involved, least of all common sense. Ilford certainly has the possible capability to continue those products if they were able to secure the rights. But would it make more business sense for Ilford to simply lay back and let the market share that would land at their shores simply happen without needing to do anything except up their production? I agree that their films look very different than Kodak's, and there might be a case made that the world would like both Delta and T-Max, but would the pain outweigh the gain for Ilford? I sure don't know.

    I think Chrysler wll begin to produce D-SLR's with a HemmieMP ECM that gets 40 frames to the gallon and passes everything but a CVS photo kiosk.

    All seriousness aside, probably more of the same, rate of acceleration of events to be determined.
    Thank you.

    I don't think Chrysler will ever produce a digital camera.

    They tried once but they had to give up because they coudln't figure out how to make them leak oil.

    Jeesh. This thread really proves the need for breathalyzers on keyboards, especially on New Year's ;^)
