Film on the Downswing

Factoid: Kodak gets 70% of its revenue today from digital products, and an outgoing Kodak exec says that the company plans to stay in the film business “as far into the future as possible,” which isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement of analog formats. This all is courtesy of an AP story in the NY Times on the discontinuation of Kodachrome (yes, the story mentions the Paul Simon song), which also points out that Kodak has introduced new still and motion picture stocks in the last few years.

  1. From what I understand from film types, Kodachrome is a marvelous product that requires excruciatingly precise processing to get good results. I'm not surprised it's being discontinued, because the pros have moved to other emulsions, and consumers have moved to digital.
