So Kodak completely pulled out of the digital camera business? Shame, they make some excellent point and shoots and it was their bridge camera that bought me to Canon.

You think they made excellent P&S?

They started the digital camera revolution but they're certainly not known for "excellent" P&S.

When it comes to P&S, Kodak probably would be one of my last option.....

If they did, they would still be in business. (Of course, this wasn't the only factor why they're bankrupt and pulling out of digital cameras)

They were dead a long time ago, this is just the formalities. Sad, but inevitable.

In my opinion, dollar for dollar, they made a great P&S. I bought my daughter C series (c182) camera at Microcenter a few years ago for under $60.00 and it had so many features and takes great pics. I had a Powershot A320/A400 and A430 all fail on me within 2 years with the same exact problem. Lines in the pics due to a sensor gone bad. The Kodak has held up. Again, it's my experience and subjective. Still sad to see the pioneers could not keep up.

They MADE some good cameras in the late 90s, early 2000s. The crap they were spewing out the past 4 years has all been landfill fodder.

When I was a kid I had a Kodak disc camera. Took horrible photos but it fit in my pocket. I live in Rochester and it has been weird to watch the slow spiral down. They used to be the largest employer by a longshot. I don't see how they can continue as a business.

At some point everyone had Kodak, it is sad to see the manufacturing shift to other countries

My first camera was a Kodak Instamaticexternal link.
I almost bought one of their digital when I was starting out.. they had something like a docking station that I thought looked like a good idea.
