No doubt it would require rebuilding hardware and software from the ground up to get it into production. They have run the numbers and the business case is NOT there... <snip>...
Thos blasted numbers! We as film addicts need to do something about this! I propose we get all get together and invent a new form of math so that everything we want is profitable from Ilford. Kodachrome? no problem!, color IR film? HA! a trifling matter... Want that special imulsion that you loved 45 years ago? Simon laughs at how easy it is. It would all be so easy if we could just invent a new math. So get cracking you mathmatics people. I'm waiting...
