i don't really see this whole bankruptcy-restructuring being anything more than kodak concentrating on what that had planned to concentrate to begin with ..
the next generation of amateur imagemaking. ( that's not the same as analog photography )

luckily there are a handful of other companies that can easily pick up the slack!

i just find it sad that when given the opportunity to sell master rolls of film to a company that is experienced in cutting, notching, and packaging
specialty sizes for the sheet film crowd who use hard to find sizes like 20x24, 14x17, 7x11 &c, they refuse ...
even thought the film probably would have all be sold to the last scrap... in a few months...
