    Businesses also form corporations as a strategy as in "going public." It's a way to raise cash.

    Kodak Announces Agreement to Sell Eastman Gelatine Subsidiary

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if they sell their gelatin operation, doesn't that mean that they are out of the film business?

    Not necessarily, could be viewed as outsourcing gelatin production. Reduces overhead so long as you can buy what you need for the right price.

    When they sold the Gelatin business they made a deal to buy exclusively from the buyer. If anything it may help them remain in the film business since much of the gelatin goes into other products, like food. I doubt Ilford makes their own Gelatin either.

    Kodak is certainly in crisis but the speculation on these threads is ridiculous, useless, and ill-informed. Nobody outside of a handful of Kodak management really knows what will happen.

    So... I shouldn't worry about not being able to buy 4x5/8x10 E100G and Portra any time soon?

    You know it's funny my first reaction was to go and order 100 rolls of TMY-2 in 120. But then I just shrugged and said to myself if TMY-2 and Tri-X disappear like Plus-X - too bad. I will change to a film in production and not worry about stockpiling. I use FP5 and HP4 in 4x5, so why not in 120. Why spend all the time learning to use and develop a film to just see the level dropping in your fridge/freezer.

    Cheers,
