That's not true, there are mechanical watches from a couple of hundred dollars and up, the luxury brands cost like Leicas yes. I think one of Kodak's biggest mistakes was to not release a range of high quality affordable scanners, even if it meant selling them at a loss. They seem to have embraced that concept when it comes to printers and ink, so why not film which was their bread & butter? Another mistake was to not promote film and what makes it stand out compared to digital vigorously, while at the same time making quality digital products for the ones that still wanted it (they did make high quality medium format sensors but exited that area too for some reason). It could have created a much healthier balance between the two mediums. Instead they decided to turn their back on what they do best and diversify into making crappy products that no one wanted. Even just looking at their website they look old and tired, and then compare it to lomo's or the impossible project's website. They need some new blood, fresh ideas and a serious makeover. Anyway, the plustek scanner looks like serious business and will hopefully fill the void Nikon left when they exited the market.
