Kodak discontinues ALL SLIDE FILMS! The announcement makes me angry and disappointed at Kodak. Everybody, please speak out about this, we still need Kodak Slide Films!
Here’s Kodak’s notice:
Due to a steady decrease in sales and customer usage, combined with highly-complex product formulation and manufacturing processes, Kodak is discontinuing three EKTACHROME (color reversal) Films:
We estimate that, based on current sales pace, supplies of these films are expected to be available in the market for the next six to nine months; however, inventories may run out before then, depending on demand. This does not affect KODAK PROFESSIONAL Color Negative Films or KODAK PROFESSIONAL Black and White Films, which remain a viable part of the KODAK PROFESSIONAL Film portfolio.
Do you believe Kodak’s reason for discontinuing ALL SLIDE FILMS? I DON’T!
Kodak uses the same excuse to explain why they discontinue a film’s production. However, Kodak said that “Film is still profit making” after applying for bankruptcy protection. But now, they’ve killed what we love and what we need!
Kodak didn’t listen last time, I wish everybody will speak up this time. It is our LAST CHANCE to save Kodak Slide Films! I hope everybody can share this article to all film lovers and encourage them to use any method they can to contact Kodak and tell them: WE NEED KODAK SLIDE FILMS!
You can also suggest to Kodak to sell the formula of these to companies who wish to continue its production, at least we can still keep Kodak Slide Films alive. Through e-mails, letters, phone calls or Facebook, tell Kodak you are sad and angry about this, and wish them not to commit suicide and kill film lovers’ analogue future!
Share/translate this article, encourage more and more film lovers to SPEAK OUT TO KODAK, and save our ANALOGUE FUTURE!
