FinDERP: The actual Kodak company still make (amazing!) film.

This is just a brand name :/

The 'actual Kodak company' still make (amazing!) film. Not so- the actual Kodak company in the U.S. is in the printing technology business. Another 'new Kodak company' is making Kodak branded film and is based in the U.K. owned by U.K. Kodak pensioners.

On Chicago-based Calumet Photographic closes U.S. stores news story (195 comments in total)

Having moved to Philadelphia 4 years ago, I decided it was time to visit the Calumet Store here for the first time a couple of weeks ago. What a disappointment, empty shelves, a few silent staff acting like the walk dead, not a word spoken to me- I made a quick exit. I was always proud to be a Calumet customer as I was a founding partner in a pro color lab in Boston in the early 70's when Calumet provided us the low cost processing equipment that enabled us to build our business. Earlier in my college days, I bought a Calumet metal 4x5 view camera like so many other young serious photographers then did. That camera was the first and the last one I used in my lab business before I sold my interest in it and moved on. Calumet Camera, R.I.P.

Where is the Gearshop/Amazon in this picture? Shouldn't I be 'One-Click' away from buying these items?

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (532 comments in total)

Looking to upgrade from RX100, had my eyes on an RX10 but the new Canon semi-compact camera might bring me back to Canon as an RX10 is big, heavy, and expensive.

Concerned that the lack of the ability to control DR in a single exposure mode like Fuji and Sony cameras do- I am hooked on this feature but see no reference to this ability in current and future Canon cameras- Can someone enlighten me?

Love the idea of an EVF that you can shoot looking down into it.

Just wondering on the theatre interior shot since it seems it was a live stage show if photography was allowed in the theatre (especially of the lit stage?)

If a camera would make an instant print, and also write the same image to an SD card, it would be a winner for me. Kodak checked-out the possibility of making a Kodak APS camera that would also write images to a memory card, but their addiction to film/chemical/paper/print profits won out (battle won, war lost.)

I've been flipping back and forward between an image of a Nikon 1 and the new Polaroid. Funny that the strap lugs and the focus assist lamp are all in the same place. Maybe Nikon has found a new outlet for their 'highly successful' Nikon 1 camera system by partnering with a 'highly successful' camera brand like Polaroid?

On Instagram responds to clamor around TOS changes post (79 comments in total)
In reply to:

Horshack: It's the same rope-a-dope strategy Facebook employs in all their ToS changes. It's designed to lull you into a false sense of security while they systematically keep pressing the ToS until they have the right to sell all your private information to the highest bidders.

If they want to use my profile photo to promote their services to other users, then they should compensate me, or give me the option to prevent them from using it. Otherwise they are steeling my image, as well as my photo! Wise-up folks, you own both the image and the photo of yourself when it is used for commercial purposes (and you don't need to post one of yourself on either service.)

How about sharing the results with us since we provided the input at no charge? Or will 6Sight and PMA cuddle the results to only paying members and/or confrence attendees?
