On Kodak reborn: A look at JK Imaging's 2014 lineup article (195 comments in total)

Looks like they're planning to compete is several established, currently successful markets like Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras and GoPro competitors. More power to them. I hope these products deliver on their promise and on the name Kodak. Pricing and marketing will largely determine the success of these products. I suspect they won't be bought by people spending a lot of time studying their specs.

itchhh: Great photo! This looks like a Minuteman III.... How did you come to get this photo especially in Tucson AZ?

Yes, that's the Titan Museum. The missile inside is a training missile that was never flyable. It took a special deal with the USSR to arrange to make a museum from this missile silo. All of the other Titan silos were filled in as part of an arms-limitation treaty. The missile port must always be partially opened to allow for satellite inspection. Also, this silo was used in the Star Trek movie Star Trek: First Contact. The Titan missile doubled as Zephram Cochran's first human-built, warp-capable spacecraft.

Many thanks to the author of this fine book. It's an inspiration on many levels and will help many photographers get better images, even if their safari takes them only to their back yard.

W5JCK: A PDF is NOT an eBook. An eBook is in a format that is readable on electronic reader devices like the Kindle, Sony Readers, Nook, et cetera. For example, a format like MOBI or ePub. A PDF is just a crappy, bloated, antiquated format developed a generation ago by Adobe to allow the secure transfer of documents designed to be printed.

Funny, I depend on downloading and using the information in PDFs nearly every day. Also, I've paid for a few eBooks in PDF format so it's a shame to find out they don't really exist. In other words, it's the content not the container that's important to me. PDF containers seem to work fine for nearly everyone in the world except perhaps for the late Steve Jobs and the author of this comment.
