  1. Watching television last night (A&E), I was shocked into silence to find
    that Kodak ran a commercial for its black and white film.

  3. A Touch of Frost. Oh, you mean which Kodak film. No particular film
    was specified. At the end of the commercial, they showed a one-use
    Kodak camera and a 35 mm cassette of Kodak labelled film, that I think
    was a TMax film, but I could not be sure.

    BW film.

    It's edge-marked BWC last time I looked, and I *really* believe it's
    identical to T400CN different base (a base tuned for color printing
    machines). It certainly scans like T400CN on a color base.

  7. And if I say that in ten years rhe Kodak's revenues from black and white
    camera film, chemistry and papers will be about the same level as today - in
    the same time frame will the revenues from the same marketplace for color
    be... maybe 10% of the revenues 2002?

    In other words, color is beginning to smell dead meat... black and white is
    dead meat since a long time but there is a small market for this dead meat.
    It also shows some signs of growth on the consumer side.

    Don't call me "digital". I'm investing in more analog color and belive that
    there are always some people out there demanding the superb high quality of
    this "dead meat" which the mass market abandons.
