This report highlights the huge changes in photography in the last decade and of course the need for companies to adjust to changing technology. Whereas other companies in the field adjusted to the digital age and saw themselves as being in the image business, Kodak remained essentially a film company.
From the ABC:
Iconic photography company Eastman Kodak is preparing to file for bankruptcy in the coming weeks if efforts to sell off digital patents fall through, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The WSJ says "people familiar with the matter" have confirmed that the filmmaker is in talks with potential lenders for around $1 billion in financing to keep it afloat.
The 131-year-old company is still making last-ditch efforts to sell around 1,100 patents through a court-supervised bankruptcy auction.
A filing for bankruptcy could occur as soon as this month or early February, the source said.
Kodak spokespeople in the US could not be reached for comment this morning.
Kodak shares plunged 28 per cent on the report.

I've just got home from tonight's photo exhibition at the Bowling Club. It was a fund-raiser organised by Margaret Baxter for the High School Community Centre. It was a pleasant night out and probably raised about $1000.
I was blown away by the amount of talent that our local photographers have, but even more blown away by the beauty of God's creation glimpsed in so many different ways.
Praise be to God!

Lois has taken some great photos of last night's lunar eclipse visible in Canada.
I thought James and a few others might like to take a look.
I don't think my little Fuji would be quite up to that kind of photography. With 3x zoom you would just get a blurry little speck in the middle of the frame!
