It really is an interesting point though regarding Kodak's position in the 
market place. When I was a young adult in the photo
business in the 70's, Kodak was seen as the giant in film.
Now they are amongst the leaders in sensor design/production, but that film 
business seems to be just barely hanging on in my
perception. I still have my Kodak letter advising of the death of Kodachrome 
here in Australia. Also had to find a replacement for
HD200 and that was a colour neg film that I used a lot of in compact cameras 
particularly. I thought colour neg would be the last to
fold, but that range too is narrowing.

Hoppy with a lot of Astia, Velvia, Provia, Reala, Superia and Ilford bw's in 
my stockpile.

Is that some kind of compensation for all those who grieve the
possible loss of Kodachrome?
