Kodak completes $527 million transaction related to digital imaging patents.

LomoChrome-Purple-400

Lomography introduced a new 400 ISO color negative film which gives naturally infrared results.

Pocket-Wizard-MiniTT1

There will be a "fix" for the inconsistent battery life of the Pocket Wizard MiniTT1. The Li battery, after only a few hours of use, becomes unreliable and has to be replaced for peak performance. The "fix" is a new USB power cable that plugs into the camera's 10pin and provides the Mini with higher power and better performance. Arriving second week of March.

    I was told the USB power adapter for minitt1 was going to be around $29

    So the Limo film appears to be an IR film with a filter layer…

    I realize Kodak is desperately trying to get out of bankruptcy, but I don’t understand how selling off their digital imaging patents helps them (unless it includes a license for them to continue using those patents). Since digital imaging is the future, exactly what business is Kodak going to be in when it emerges from bankruptcy? I’ve heard they want to be in the “printing” business, but what does that mean? Are they going to compete with Canon and Epson?

    Kodak is down to making just 11 35mm still films: BW400CN, T-Max 100 (TMX) and 400 (TMY2), Tri-X Pro 400 (TX), Kodak Gold 200 (GB), Kodak Ultra-Max 400 (GC) and 800 (GD), Ektar 100 and Porta 160, 400 and 800.

    For motion picture camera film, they’re still making Vision 3 in 50D (ER), 250D (EN), 200T (EO) and 500T (EJ); Vision 2 in 50D (EK) and “Kodak” in 500T (EZ) as well as Extachrome Reversal 100D (EA), Black & White Negative Double X 200T/250D (E) and Tri X Reversal 160T/200D (ED). I suspect EK and EZ will be discontinued next. They also still make four color and two b&w intermediate films and two color and two black & white print films as well as a few sound, title and archive films, but I bet they’ll soon be down to one color intermediate film and one b&w. Considering that by 2014, there won’t be any more 35mm projection in the U.S. (except perhaps in museums, academic institutions and archives), you have to wonder how long any of these motion picture films will survive.

    Kodak’s policy has been to discontinue an emulsion when sales decline to a point where they can’t make the batches consistently, but since they’re now in bankruptcy, economics has to be playing a role as well.
