Right, imo.
I know the increase in digital is a big part of the Kodak "slump," but isn't a bigger part the fact that they didn't adjust from a managerial standpoint? Ilford is doing ok, as far as we know, doing just film, chemicals, and paper. If Kodak had downsized their production and made it more possible to continue limited runs, but still make many film types, they might be in different shape. They followed the market rather than finding a niche and sticking with it. They were trying too hard to be something for everyone rather making a decision and following through. Just my non-knowledgeable 2 cents.
