I sure hope kodak can make it out of this and become stable. I just got my first 100 foot print of 16mm back today. So beautiful!

If Kodak is going primarily negative film stock, they should innovate a proprietary film to video transfer system that transfer houses could set up in small rooms for clients on a tight budget. It would not run in real time but the quality would be very good.

This could encourage those who just want to shoot a roll or two but don't want to be hit with a one hour transfer to digital minimum to do the transfer themselves at the transfer house at a much lower cost per hour. Because the film speed is so much slower, the client can take a few extra moments to optimize the transfer settings.

Transfer houses could also intern future colorists on these systems as well.
