Kodak Discontinues B&W Photographic Papers


Eastman Kodak Company (Rochester, NY) recently announced it would stop manufacturing black-and-white photographic papers. The decision was made to discontinue silver halide-based papers because of a growing decline in demand for the media. Kodak will continue to manufacture black-and-white films and the chemistry needed to develop them. Most industry observers attribute the decline in silver halide-based paper products to the growing use of digital imaging technology, which is rapidly talking over many areas of photography.-33-
