Kodak tried. I still have one of their digital cameras. The smartphone was its undoing, I'd say, making picture taking just another feature of a mobile device.

With such a huge expertise in the camera technologies I still do not understand why Kodak was not able to adapt to digital camera technologies.

In a nostalgic sense, I kind of miss the old days of waiting to see how the prints came out on the latest roll of film I dropped off at the drug store. But I much prefer the modern convenience and low cost (essentially free) of being able to shoot as many images as I want, and instantly see if I got the shot I was hoping for. Kodak will be missed, but mostly by the older generation. The new generation of young adults barely remembers, if it all, the days when cameras required film and chemical processing that resulted in "only" hard copy prints. They will view the demise of Kodak much the same way that a much earlier generation viewed the replacement of horses with automobiles as a primary means of personal transportation.

Every time we went home to visit our parents, my mother would always pull out yet another shoe box full of Kodak photos found stuffed back on a closet shelf or under a bed (one or two ended up in my "office"). Poring over the photos, much family history was discuss --"who's that, where was this, what's with that hairdo?" -- it was great fun. After all, we live on in the memory of others. That’s what Kodak meant. Apple has more money, but I doubt it can ever match that. I predict Kodakchrome will make a comeback.

When I used my first film camera which was off course a Kodak one, there was excitement about shooting pictures , getting them printed and put them in a beautiful album to last the lifetime With the digital edge all that fun is gone as the images can be clicked, instantly viewed and many times instantly forgotten also. The nostalgia associated with those printed photos and the associated memories is all vanishing now.

I have to wonder if the demise of Kodak also means the end of that photographic family history. Pictures seem to last a lifetime, but digital images can be gone in an instant. Perhaps in the future we will look back at this event and realize it had a much larger impact on our lives than what we realized at the time.

Those were the days! Kodak has a very bright history but the emergence of digital camera has ticked the clock for its death.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
