KODAK Files For Bankruptcy Protection

Kodak, photography pioneer, files for bankruptcy protection
Read about it here.

A little  KODAK history:  1878 – George Eastman was one of the first to demonstrate the great convenience of gelatin dry plates over the cumbersome and messy wet plate photography prevalent in his day. Dry plates could be exposed and developed at the photographer’s convenience; wet plates had to be coated, exposed at once, and developed while still wet.

Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away! I’m a child of the Kodak generation. 20th century cameras, film and shiny color photos. LOL Why y’all didn’t keep up, tho?

Do you have any favorite Kodak moments to share with 3 Chic?  Please feel free to post a Kodak photo.

    the instant photo was such a revelation. remember when the pic was taken and it would slide out of the camera, and you would watch the picture come into focus?

    Could bankruptcy filing spell the end for Kodak, photo innovator overtaken by new technology?
    By Associated Press,
    ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Kodak’s moment has come and gone.

    The glory days when Eastman Kodak Co. ruled the world of film photography lasted for over a century. Then came a stunning reversal of fortune: cutthroat competition from Japanese firms in the 1980s and a seismic shift to the digital technology it pioneered but couldn’t capitalize on. Now comes a wistful worry that this icon of American business is edging toward extinction.
