    Kodak may have hit hard times in recent years, but 120 years ago it was the pioneer of home photography. In 1888 it created the Kodak No.1, which gave consumers a chance to capture relaxed scenes which had previously only been taken by professional photographers. These snapshots taken by amateurs give a charming insight into everyday life in the 19th century. It was simple to use - users would simply point in the direction of their subject, although it was a guessing game as there was not a viewfinder yet, reports Gizmodo. They would then wind the film, open the...

    -- Kodak -- the company known for decades for its cameras and film -- this week confirmed it used weapons-grade uranium in an underground lab in upstate New York for upwards of 30 years. A company spokesman and a former scientist for the firm say there was not enough material to sustain a nuclear chain reaction. Former Kodak researcher Albert Filo said the uranium was alloyed with aluminum in plates sealed in sleeves that were not moved for three decades. The amount of fuel was about 3½ pounds, which experts say is less than one-tenth of the amount necessary to...

    Kodak announced today that it has decided to discontinue its color reversal (AKA slide) films due to a steady decrease in sales and usage. The films discontinued are Ektachrome E100G/E100VS and Elite Chrome Extra Color 100. The company estimates that based on current sales pace, you’ll still be able to purchase the discontinued films for about six to nine months. If you were a loyal Kodak slide film shooter, it’ll soon be time to switch over to negative film or to Fujifilm color reversal films.

    Kodak, the company that invented the first digital camera back in 1975, announced today that it is pulling out of the camera market entirely. The phasing out of digital cameras, pocket video cameras, and digital picture frames will likely happen by the end of June. Instead, the company will be focusing on licensing out its patents and brand name (much like Polaroid does), and on inkjet photo printing. Although Kodak wasn’t a big player in the digital camera space, it was once a dominant camera maker in the days of film. The original Kodak Brownie helped popularize consumer photography and...

    The news that Eastman Kodak is preparing to file for bankruptcy, after being the leading photographic company in the world for more than a hundred years, truly marks the end of an era. The skills required to use the cameras and chemicals required by the photography of the mid-19th century were far beyond those of most people — until a man named George Eastman created a company called Kodak, which made cameras that ordinary people could use. It was Kodak's humble and affordable box Brownie that put photography on the map for millions of people, who just wanted to...

    Investors who have not yet sold their holdings in EK should get out while they still can. Management must have known about the massive gap between the company's assets and liabilities for some time, at least a year or more. Given that they have not, in this time, been able to monetize the company's patent portfolio at a level that could save the company, it is fair to assume that the court-supervised auction dictated by Chapter 11 bankruptcy will not do much better. Instead, we can expect a fight from the company's employees for as much of the benefits promised...

    Bankruptcy: News that Eastman Kodak may file for bankruptcy brought a flood of nostalgia for the venerable company. But Kodak's demise underscores the unique strength of our free-market economy — its constant renewal. Sixty-two years after Kodak was founded, economist Joseph Schumpeter popularized the term "creative destruction" to describe a key function of free market economies. "New consumers, goods, the new methods of production or transportation, the new markets, the new forms of industrial organization" were, he said, constantly creating new industries and new companies, while destroying old ones. Now, 70 years after Schumpeter put his finger on this phenomenon,...

    Eastman Kodak Co. is preparing for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy-protection filing in the coming weeks should efforts to sell a trove of digital patents fall through, people familiar with the matter said. The struggling photography icon, which employs about 19,000 people, is in discussions with potential lenders for around $1 billion in so-called debtor-in possession financing that would keep it afloat during bankruptcy proceedings, the people said. A filing could occur as soon as this month or early February, one of the people said. A Kodak spokesman said the company "does not comment on market rumor or speculation."

    Investors dumped Eastman Kodak's stock Friday amid fears that the photography pioneer is headed toward bankruptcy. After its stock lost more than half its value in a volatile day of trading, Kodak tried to paint a rosier picture. "Kodak is committed to meeting all of its obligations and has no intention of filing for bankruptcy," the company said in a statement. The reassurance lifted Kodak shares in extended trading, but the rebound wasn't enough to undo the damage sustained in a brutal week for a hallowed name in U.S. business.

The same words could now be said for the company he left behind. My work is done. For all intents and purposes, the Eastman Kodak Company is through.

    Kodak has closed one of its oldest and most famous product lines, in the latest sign of the film business fading away against the onslaught of digital photography. The US-based group on Monday said it would cease production of Kodachrome, the line of professional quality film that was first developed in 1935 and became one of the company’s pre-eminent brands, known for stunning colours and sharpness. Kodachrome captured some of the world’s most well-known images, including the 1984 photograph ‘Afghan Girl’ of a refugee with a torn red scarf and striking green eyes, which was on the cover of National...

Largely because of $214 million in restructuring costs, Kodak lost the equivalent of 98 cents a share in the April-June quarter, compared with a loss of $155 million, or 54 cents a share, a year ago. Hurt by a rapid slide in film sales, revenues fell 9 percent to $3.36 billion from $3.69 billion in last year's second quarter. Excluding...

The Tokyo-based Canon's move followed a similar move by its closest Japanese rival, Nikon Corp., which announced earlier this year it would stop making seven of its nine film cameras and concentrate on digital models. Canon will continue making film cameras already on the market as long as their demand remains. Whether to withdraw from the film camera business will be "decided appropriately by judging the market...

    Eastman Kodak Co., which turned picture-taking into a mass-market pastime a century ago, is quickly making up for a sluggish start in filmless photography in the 21st century. Its digital sales, which surged 40 percent in the fourth quarter, will eclipse revenues from film and other iconic, chemical-based businesses for the first time in 2005. Less than four years after launching its EasyShare cameras, which are priced from $99 to $499, Kodak now appears to have closed the gap on Japanese front-runner Sony Corp. in the U.S. point-and-shoot digital camera market. Digital cameras, which began outselling film cameras in the...

With sales of digital cameras poised to overtake film cameras for the first time this year, Kodak is redefining itself in an effort to keep pace. But the No. 1 maker of photographic film will continue to sell one-time use cameras in the West and expand its sales of these and other film-based cameras--and film--in emerging markets where demand is on the...
