Seele, I agrree 100% and I've been saying so for years. Kodak had the influence and power to beat back digi easily. Instead they jumped ship to play catch-up as a second rate marketer of asian junk.
I've always imagined an ad... Picture a modern family opening a box in their attic. They find negatives from their family that are over 50 years old. They have them printed and displayed on their "family wall" with pride... Jump to year 2050, family opens box in attic. They find a collection of flash cards and CD's. They shrudge their shoulders and toss them in the vaporisor.... "Film is Forever"...
May be too late now?
