Here are the blog posts I enjoyed most this week, collected for your reading pleasure:

    Thanks for the shout-out. For clarification, it’s not that I don’t think the studios will use the film = they bought it, so I’m sure it won’t go to waste. I just don’t think this is in any way a solution, or something that will solve Kodak’s problems in anything but the short term. If people want to keep Kodak in business, it’s time to go out and shoot more film!

      Thanks for clarifying, Joe. I have my doubts that the existing cadre of film shooters are enough to buoy Kodak. So we need to convert more photographers to film!
