On article Video: Diving into the demise of Kodak (227 comments in total)

The question is not what happened to Kodak, but what happened to Fuji which had been gaining market share and survived the transition MUCH better than Kodak.
The 2 companies did things very differently:
Kodak became the leader in that segment but when it saw it was not as profitable as film it left the market and focused on photo printing.
- There was a lot of internal resistance to the digital camera from traditional business at Kodak.
- Kodak sold all non film businesses to concentrate on digital, Fuji was more diversified and kept those businesses.
- Fuji realized that the change was much deeper and the CEO at the time said to the company that the challenge they faced was equivalent to saying to Toyota that they could no longer manufacture cars.
- Fuji asked themselves "what is it that they knew' and came to the conclusion that their knowledge was in chemistry and they started exploring what they could do with that know-how and expanded their presence in cosmetics and medicine.

Manuel Jos Carvajal: I'm also very disappointed with Photos, the switch from Aperture means giving away lots of functionality and in my case with a database of 380GB also speed, Photos is much slower than Aperture.

Will Photos allow third parties to offer retouching capabilities that it lacks?

From what I see and read I'm not aware of this option is being looked at by companies that make photos retouching software, I hope I'm wrong

visionaer: Sadly Apple is doing the same with all new products. They dont care about the Pros anymore.

If Apple for some reason wanted to discontinue Aperture and knowing that Photos is not an adequate replacement, they should at least allow Lightroom to integrate better with existing Apple features like iCloud, etc.

It would be nice if Apple, knowing that they do not have an adequate replacement for Aperture, would allow Lightroom to be able to connect directly to my iCloud account so I can share photos and also allow Lightroom to be a source of photos for the built in screen saver.
