Kodak says, "Screw film, I never liked it anyway."

Kodak has decided to stop producing and selling film cameras in the United States, Canada, and Europe (except for disposables) and put all their resources towards digital ones. That's a fairly major statement for a leader in the field of consumer-level photography. Time to buy some Sandisk stock I guess.

Anybody out there an amateur (or professional) photographer? I know at least two people who are, one uses film and the other uses digital. Do you see this as the death of film photography? Will it be relegated to the annals of history as something only professionals or weirdos use like turntables or betamax tapes? Personally, I think it's a pretty bold step by Kodak; one I wasn't expecting to see for a few years to come.
