ROCHESTER, N.Y., January 19 — Eastman Kodak Company (“Kodak” or the “Company”) announced today that it and its U.S. subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for chapter 11 business reorganization in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

The Company has made pioneering investments in digital and materials deposition technologies in recent years, generating approximately 75% of its revenue from digital businesses in 2011.

Comparison of Sony NEX-7 with A900

Wed January 18, 2012

Sony NEX-7

Sony NEX-7

Rick Kattelmann over at Luminous Landscape has an interesting comparison of the Sony NEX-7 [QuickPrice Check] compact mirrorless with the A900 DSLR. It is interesting to be finding more and more professional photographers who are seriously considering replacing their large, heavy and cumbersome traditional mirrored DSLR with a compact mirrorless DSLR.

Though no one seems to be very brave enough to announce the beginning of the end for traditional mirrored DSLR, we have never been shy to say so here. Here’s what we believe: film is better than digital; traditional mirrored DSLR is better than mirrorless. Long live digital! Long live mirrorless!

Early Mixed News About Apple’s Thursday Event

Wed January 18, 2012

The news leaking out of Apple are mixed. Early rumors were that Apple was going to announce an iTunes for textbooks that would have instantly converted all schools to using the iPad instead of Netbooks — and usher in the long awaited digital revolution in education. But alas, it looks like this is not going to happen at Thursday’s “Big Apple” event.

However, it’s not all bad news. Apple is expected to announced a “GarageBand for e-book” to make e-book publishing easier. For who, we ask? It’s not everyday’s Joe who writes textbook. But maybe, they will be able to do so now — unleashing a fury of teachers across the nation as they address the woefully inadequate state of textbooks. Is this last sentence good English?
