    Apart from the fact it announces Kodak, "...will no longer sell 35mm cameras
    in the US or Western Europe."

    Well, yes, but in fairness Kodak were never a massive player in the camera
    market. 35mm Cameras still exist and will do so for some time yet. My own
    guess would be a decade or so.

    I rather think that the announcement is more to do with Kodak stitching it's
    colours to the Digital Mast, in the light of bad results recently.

    I agree, in fact what worries me more than Kodak's statement itself are the
    peripheral stories and hype about the end of film from this announcement -
    far more likely to damage the longer term (apparent) life of film IMHO.

  6. Yes, from the tone of some of the articles you'd think that Kodak had
    stopped making 35mm _film_. This isn't even the first time they've pretty
    much dropped out of the 35mm camera market. I have a 20 year old copy of
    'Which Camera' (don't ask) that lists plenty of 110, 126, Disc and Instant
    Kodaks, but not a single 35mm camera with their badge on it. If they were
    making them back then for the UK market, they were certainly keeping it
    quiet...
