Great use of stock footage. Most of which was shot on film....odd for an ad promoting "digital."

I loved the Howard Dean reference, good stuff

:)

Was "Advantix" really a flop? I rather enjoyed it, it's easier than peering through negatives to figure out what ones you wanted to have developed.

Oh boy, it's gonna look fake, there's no way digital could do all that in-camera and look real. I hate Kodak now.

That was funny. Reminded me of some of the strange folks I used to know who worked in the Mines of Moria at Kodak Park.

Yeah, so why'd they shoot a commercial about Kodak's new digital route on 35mm, ahem, ahem, or maybe they thought since they did it in 2.35 that we wouldn't notice? Almost as funny as the Apple Commercial for the "Digital Video Revolution" with dust specks :rolleyes: Maybe RED should shoot a commercial on 35.

What the hell is intelligent color metering? Are they talking about warm vs. cool? Or
cpu generated color in relation to real subjects(water,clouds,grass,human face,moon,
white picket fence). Thank goodness this will end the dreaded "red eye" for once and
all. Who was the DP? All kidding aside. Thank you Kodak for supporting me in my pho-
tography business for many years.

Not to mention Vision2, which is unmatched in detail, low grain, and excellent latitude.

Kodak is a great company, that brought us great products and still do, but this is just a COMPANY, and I bet that in the future film digital or both there where always be a great company that will suplied our needs, hopefully will be Kodak, but if not well I think we always remember kodak....( but in my personal opinion I don't think they are going anywhere with out a fight)
