Subject: [AMIA-L] News: Kodak To End Production Of Acetate Film Base

Financial expert George Conboy says the 60 jobs and manufacturing savings won't 
have a major financial impact on the bankrupt company.
He believes it speaks more to the future of camera film.
"Clearly, beyond the couple of years worth that they have stored, Kodak doesn't 
expect to need very much more film base."
A Kodak spokesman declined to go on camera but says they plan to buy acetate 
from other manufacturers once their supply runs out.
"It's certainly a blow for the Rochester community to have that capability go 
away and the jobs associated with that," Shanebrook added.
