Does Kodak company still exist?
Since emerging from bankruptcy, Kodak has continued to provide commercial digital printing products and services, motion picture film, and still film, the last of which is distributed through the spinoff company Kodak Alaris.
Why did Kodak shut down?
Worldwide, sales of film peaked in 2001. Then sales started to decline and cratered as digital cameras took over. So one-half of the Kodak business plan-the film, processing, and printing “blades”-collapsed. Then cell phone cameras arrived, and the market for low-end digital cameras-the “razors”-imploded.
What does Kodak stand for?
The word was made up by George Eastman, and is completely meaningless. He intended it to be an onomatopoeic suggestion of the click of a camera shutter.
