    Hello all,

    I just heard about a week ago that Kodak was going to stop all producton of
    photographic paper. I got this from a guy who has worked in a photography
    store for many years, and knows all the reps very well. He says that the
    reps all seem to be running scared.

    And that Agfa, and Illford have not to long ago filed bankrupcy. If this is
    true, do you all think it will effect the film market much?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Kodak is stopping production of Black & White photo paper, not all of its
    photographic paper.

    If this were true, alot of digital labs who recently bought expensive Kodak
    machines would be gutted. ;-)

    Just B&W papers, which had been suffering from slow sales for years,
    even prior to the Digital Hit.
    Both Agfa and Ilford have resolved their issues: Agfa's film unit was
    spun off as a separate business with its own management, and Ilford
    emerged from receivership in February. Both are still selling
    product, and have restructured around current sales projections and
    models.

    It would have been a major blow to people (like me) who develop and
    print their own B&W prints if Agfa or Ilford had collapsed.
    No Rodinal and no Multigrade paper would have made it *that* much more
    difficult.
