It has only been in the few years that I stopped using Kodak. The main reason is that in my market it was hard to get many of the products that I liked, (polycontast 4 and polymax paper) and others products that I liked, such as Microdol and Xtol ,Kodak stopped making the sizes that worked best for me. I have can only recall one issue (very recent) with Kodak quailty control. I dont think of my self as anti Kodak, I really miss Kodak papers, and will miss Kodak films as well if Kodak films goes way. The market is changing and considering my volume of use and budget I found a few alternatives that fit my needs, just as Kodak makes desicions based on the best intrest of Kodak I need to make my desisions based on what is working for me.
