Anyone disturbed by the fact Kodak is selling there film department,(unsure if that's Vision 3 as well)
How does that even work a film company stops making film, that should work out well.
Imagine buying Kodak-ILFORD Vision 4 or something haha.

They want to sell the very core of the business, the box and the flexible non-curl film . . .

Are managers born without arms and hands?

Statement released by Kodak on CML:

"Please be assured that Kodak’s motion picture films are not part of this announcement. Motion Picture will remain with the company as the largest driver of film manufacturing volume. Film manufacturing is not included in the sale. It will remain within the Graphics, Entertainment and Commercial Films group, including consumer and professional still film.

In addition to manufacturing film, we are pursuing market demands that will utilise our technologies for a variety of alternative and exciting products. This includes Functional Printing applications as well as Thin Film and Specialty Chemicals growth opportunities.

And if you haven't caught up with this news yet, we have just launched a new Kodak Asset Protection Film, an affordable, innovative color film solution optimised for content owners who originate or finish their productions on digital formats and want to protect their valuable media for the future.
