We recently informed you about the acquisition of Kodak’s Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging business by the U.K. Kodak Pension Plan. Now that the acquisition is completed, the company re-emerges under the new name Kodak Alaris. The new company keeps the right to distribute products under the Kodak brand, which means we’ll continue to see film- and photo-related products from Kodak as we’re used to, which is good news for those of us who love to load their cameras with Tri-X or Portra. There’s no word yet whether Kodak Alaris aims to further cut down 35mm film production, or if they intend to introduce new emulsions in the future. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how things develop. At least we know that Kodak photographic films aren’t quite dead yet.
