nonuniform: There are three stories here: 1. the evolution of the corporate entity, Kodak;2. the ongoing story of why corporations can't innovate;3. what the f**k is going to happen to my beloved Portra 400 4x5 film!!!!!
So, the first two, I could care less. Better people than me will tell those stories.
If you don't care about film, feel free to skip the rest of this missive.
The last one, that's the most important thing on my mind. I love shooting 4x5, and Portra 400 has made it an even better experience. I shoot mostly handheld with a Crown Graphic, and having a fast film with a wide lattitude that can handle underexposure with ease has been a game changer.
I can only hope that someone like the Impossible Project, or, better yet, the Impossible Project, buys the film division. It has a small, but productive life ahead of it. Perfect for a small, but dedicated group.
" I could care less" means you care enormously. Your phraseology is a common error, sadly.
