Ready for some very sad news? Along with all the other problems that Kodak is going through, today the company is ceasing production of their acetate film base. According to the Rochester Homepage, the reasons why are due to the major slaes drops for film and because the machine needs to be kept on for very long periods of time–and that becomes very resource consuming. Without it, the photosensitive emulsion that goes on top of it is nearly worthless unless one tries to figure out a way to put it on glass plates or something of the sort.

Kodak has had loads of troubles and continue to lay off more employees, and the company’s new Micro Four Thirds camera isn’t even really being made by them.
