*Kodak* has been through some of its roughest times in recent years, yet it undoubtedly remains one of the most influential names in photography. Its founder, *George Eastman*, is also one of the most important figures not only in this industry but most importantly in general history for his invaluable inventions and other contributions.

From his beginnings in photography, choosing a name for what would become one of the most relevant companies in the world, up to his death, this short yet informative video by Bill Hammack (the engineerguy on YouTube) succinctly summarized Eastman and his innovations in photography. And, unlike most biographies and history lessons, Hammack’s manages to hold the viewers’ attention both due its short running time and the entertaining images accompanying his storytelling.

    Good piece of history. To bad the illustrations don't go along with the text.
