Sad. They really should have jumped all over digital when it was young. Now they are just remembered for how big they were when we all used film. Hope they can do something to keep the name alive.

I have heard that before, but I was also taught that Canon and Nikon made the decision to be widespread and widely available in order to be popular with marketing and Pros who could influence the consumers. Kodak did not go intensely into the global digital market at a reasonable price for popularity.

They didn't ignore digital, they just didn't remain synonymous with photography in the digital consumer age.

Or so I understand...
