No, Really, What Do You Mean, Kodak? Are You In or Out of the Film Business?

Okay, now I see a new post from Kimberly Snyder, President and General Manager, Entertainment and Commercial Films Group, Vice President of Eastman Kodak Company, written in moderately more clear language than the previous post (see my post from Wednesday). Kimberly's post indicates:
"As a matter of fact, all film manufacturing will actually stay with Kodak, including that of consumer and professional still film."
Well, I certainly welcome this news, and hope it's true.

At this point, I'm sure that Kodak continuing in the business is best for us photographers. At the very least, the transition of so many years of manufacturing process, expertise, and equipment would take some time. So, here's to Kodak. I'll buy some film today just to support your efforts.
