Kodak still plans to offer E6 chemistry and compete with Fuji in this category. That means they think
E6 process lines still have a future. But their chemistry is made by a spinoff not subject to the
bankruptcy, so without the same disruptive factor.
Champion isn't a spin off company, it was formed by the merger of May & Baker's Phohoto Division with other companies in Canada & the US, they used to make Ilford & Paterson's chemistry until accepting the contract to manufacture Kodak's chemistry.
As usual, I suspect Aristophanes is actually an undercover digital camera saleman.
