Rochester Photo News
Today, Kodak sold it's core image sensor division to another company for an undisclosed amount. They can still use all current technology for their own products, but this does not mean much as they don't make digital cameras! ;)
Scott's photo is closing January 1 2012. It is one of the last photofinishers in Rochester NY.
Hahn Graphic, one one of the last sources of quality analog products in Rochester closed last month.
Excellent news. Now Kodak can concentrate on film :)
No! I just bought 35 rolls of 400H...
And I just bought 10 rolls of Plus-X.
..and I just bought another 100 of Tri-X :)
Talk about futile gestures...
The sensor group was one of the jewels in the crown. I wonder if the patent portfolio that went with it was part of the sale?
Any word on who the buyer was?
Google is my friend:
Platinum Equity. I have to wonder what they are going to do with it?
Kodak doesn't make cameras but they do sell sensors as far as I know.
Too bad, My brother in law roomed with Scotty at RIT. They are still friends..
