What a lot of people here seem to forget is that Kodak might be the big Guy in the Film World, but is in fact a dwarf compared to its competitors outside the film world. Sony, Nikon, Panasonic, Samsung, Canon are in fact huge companies Nikon's parent employs 3 Million people. And those companies not owned by huge corporations are owned by huge Banks and insurance companies. Kodak can't compete with the big digital guys simple because it doesn't have the money or the sugar daddy to help it. BTW there are some Family tie between Fuji and Nikon so even Fuji is in reality the more powerful company. Furthremore Kodak constantly invents things but nobody takes them serious because they don't have the political and monetary clout to make people use them unlike some other companies.
Long live Kodak, long live film
