Looks like Kodak is not the only one in trouble. I hate to say this but Fujifilm recently decided to end manufacturing cinema film. Traditional motion picture production and projection are slowly dying. And to keep up with digitization, the Japanese company is quitting motion picture film production–this means it won’t be making negative and positive films for shooting and projection, respectively.
We knew this was bound to happen. It’s a fact: it’s happening now. Older companies will shut down to give way to newer and more hi-tech ones. For one, Kodak is pausing its camera production but I think it will take a little while.
Fujifilm isn’t stopping production completely as it will still provide films for high-performance lens for motion pictures, as well as, archiving. Those films used by amateurs and professional will not be manufactured anymore.
Another sad day for the traditional photography business.
