kodak got to where they are for alot of different reasons.
one that i am kind of peeved about is they didn't sell master rolls
to other people so they could cut them and package+resell them
for people who shoot sheet film and who don't want to wait around
for a "special order" to get a box of 7x11 or 2.5x3.5" sheet film,
or something crazy big for a pinhole /camera obscura.
there are lots of reasons why they are in the place they are in today ..
and hindsight is always 20/20 ...
vive la difference !
