There is no two ways about it - Kodak seems to have very serious problems indeed. The main product range I am most concerned about is Portra - the new Portra films are very popular and have enticed numerous professionals to start shooting more film. The Fuji range does not even begin to compare - no 220, no 8x10, no 400 ASA in 4x5. Now, no 35mm 160S. And, good as the films are, the technology is older than Portra.
Maybe the best thing for Kodak would be some sort of restructuring.
It's on a different scale, but in 2003 it all looked like it was over for Ilford - but following the administration it was able to re-focus and has become a very successful company.
One question though - what is John Cleese doing on the board at Kodak?:
