They're not dead, they've just moved over to the name licensing business. It's been a well planned corporate strategy all along.

Way to go Kodak!

Surely entering a saturated market will help matters a lot.

I predict that withinin 25 or 30 years, someone will invent a digital camera with a built-in miniaturized printer, eliminating the need to separately print the image file. tongue

I don't Know if that fits my definition of well planned, maybe it's just
what they have to do to stay around.

Kodak is no longer Kodak, that's pretty much it. Their head got too big for their britches, and now they are grasping and chasing, too bad- especially considering they are an hour down the road from me hmm

It's been done... and flopped, although Polaroid came out with one a few months ago.
Nobody really knows about it so I think history will repeat itself

Wasn't there a digital camera out about ten years ago that had a printer built-in? I could swear I saw a small consumer-type thing that the print came out the bottom of the camera...

EDIT: Shit, sorry, didn't see the reply directly above - need to drink coffee smile

A product like this could be thought of as the ghost of Kodak.
(they are dead but their confused spirit is still hanging around trying to continue living)

Nerf licensed their name to a camera too.
Just because someone slaps a name across it doesn't mean it's a real contender.

Don't molest the dead.  Let Kodak rest in peace.
