Sad news to start that year that Kodak has filed for bankruptcy protection. This of course does not mean there will be no-more Kodak film, but it does obviously put the film part of its business under even more pressure. Perhaps this may do the industry some good in consolidating film production for Ilford in black and white, and Fuji in colour, but any loss of diversity in product ranges is a great shame. Personally I moved to Ilford and Fuji some years ago following the loss of the fantastic Kodachrome 25, one of the most naturalistic and finest grain films ever produced.
