Kodak has announced that it will no longer produce digital cameras, pocket-size video cameras, as well as digital picture frames. This announcement comes less than a month after the Kodak announced that they would be seeking bankruptcy protection in the United States. Luckily, this photography icon will not be shutting down. Instead, Kodak will be investing in their film division, which comes as a huge reassurance to film photographers. Kodak reports that it’s decision to move towards keeping film alive will save the company over $100 million a year. Kodak’s newly changed consumer business will include photo kiosks(both retail-based and online), desktop inkjet printers, camera accessories, and batteries.
