It is sad to see that Kodak will go bankrupt soon. It was one of the most important and leading companies in the photography field. I read the news and it says that this company will apply for the bankrupt in the coming days. Sighing...

Yes, I heard about this. They were way too slow to embrace digital technology & every other company quickly overtook them in that area. Costly court cases with polaroid added to the mess. If you don't adapt to the changing market, consumers will leave you in droves.

You are right. So any big companies can lose if they don't adjust to the needs.

Yes, big isn't necessarily better... just more overheads & more things to go wrong. Small companies are not immune either, being limited in the means that are available to them. Not just another "Kodak Moment"! We'll need to find another expression now.

I don't know. But the digital camera business has a negative effect on the traditional photography field.

Oh really??? I have never heard of this sad news~ The word 'Kodak' is very common in our life. In fact we always called 'Kodak' referring to the film negative whenever I want to buy it. But since we don't use film anymore in photography..

But today fewer people use the camera with film, and it has a big negative effect on Kodak.

No, kodak also produced quite a number of digital cameras which are quite good in quality. I myself have got one that I am find it really good and can produce good quality photos.

With the advancement of technology and cheap cameras around, nowadays is easy to do everything at the comfort of your home. Kodak is just one of the victim of so much advancement in technology, others will follow soon.

hi youless wow that is most upsetting as they are an old company and one of the first in photography. I hope maybe they can pull out of this someway and still be a company, but maybe not. our economy is really bad here in the US when big companies are going] bankrupt like that.I had not yet heard that news and it is sort of shocking as they are an old respected company here in the US.
