According to a recent rumor, some or all of Kodak Alaris film business might be sold as soon as March current year. Reportedly, the company has out its film, paper and photo chemical assets up for sale in an attempt to cover around $2.7 billion worth of debt.
It’s been over a year since Kodak announced that it is bringing Ektachrome film back to the market. And now it’s finally happening: Kodak Ektachrome will soon start shipping to distributors worldwide. Very soon, all you film enthusiasts will be able to buy a roll or five of Ektachrome35mm and shoot away!
You’ve probably never heard of Kodak Alaris, but they’re the reason why you still get to enjoy using Kodak films to this day. Just this year, they’ve announced the reintroduction of Ektachrome and T-MAX P3200. Apart from keeping film stocks alive, they also continue to manufacture and sell disposable cameras. In fact, according to photographyblog, they just released a new single-use daylight camera with ISO 800 film today, and you might want to check it out.
We did not find any supporting evidence aside from that mention so we are treating this as a rumor.
