Missing Kodak

Kodak teeters on the brink of oblivion. Yahoo! Finance economics editor Daniel Gross summarizes the fall of the iconic brand founded more than a century ago by George Eastman: “In many ways, George Eastman would be enthusiastic at the democratization of film. Cameras today are as easy to use as pencils. Everyone is a photographer and can afford the devices and tools necessary to capture life on their own terms. But here’s the irony: In a culture in which every instant of life can easily be filmed or captured in pictures, there may no longer be room for Kodak.” I think I’m going to buy some Kodak film today, while I still can, and spend some time in the near future making on-digital pictures with some old 35mm and 120mm film cameras.  I just wish I could buy some Kodachrome.
