Blogging on MSNBC - Kodak to stop selling traditional cameras
Interestingly, Eastman Kodak has decided to stop selling traditional film cameras in the US. So, the film is on its way out. A wise move i believe, the comfort offered by a digital camera is uncomparable by a digital one - no hassles with buying and developing film and so easy to share to all. Even, out here we in XLRI are more impressed with digicams than with the traditional ones - almost every new one bought these days is a digicam - and they are very handy, particularly when one wants an instant snap.
However, the technology needs to improve a lot - which i'm sure it will. The costs of digicams are already coming down and soon i'm sure the digicam is going to rule the picture world.
