IMO Kodaks' mistake in the digital camera era was making all of their system proprietary. Their stuff was good, not great, but once you bought the camera all the accessories had to be Kodak.
If they had made their docking/transfer stations open to all brands that would have gone a long way in getting their stuff more widely accepted and distributed.
They had some good ideas - just too locked into their brand only.

Just my opinion.

I had a Kodak P850 with the Easy share gimmick. It was only fair, the pics were overprocessed to cope with sensor noise. I would get going on a series of shots and accidentally bump the stupid easy share button. I lost some good shots that way.

Like IBM, Personak Computers (PCs) and PS/2 Microchannel Architecture (MCA) -- the best in the world -- for maybe 10 years -- until you fixate on obscene profit margins, proprietary means, and patented mechanisms.

Just my opinion.

A very valid opinion -- seen by Seagram's Distilleries when they sneaked into DuPont and basically sold off the assets while it still was viable. Left it crippled and begging.
