Kodak isn't a manufacture of anything. "Kodak" is just a word that gets stamped on things. It's just a meaningless brand name.
I don't even know what company owns the Polaroid brand, anymore. I'm not sure it even matters.
That's what's going to happen to Kodak.
What you describe here has happened to quite a few very well known brands, as this article points out. Many great companies which stood for a well known and solid product lines (Polaroid being one of them listed in the article) are now only used for their brand name, under which random junk is peddled to the unsuspecting customer.
