No more Kodak cameras

Larissa Anderson Feb 9, 2012
Kodak will phase out its digital cameras, digital picture frames, and pocket video cameras in the first half of this year, which it says will help save more than $100 million. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month and; although it was an industry leader for many years, Kodak hasn’t been able to keep up with the iPhone and other devices people would rather use to take photos.  Kodak says it’s going to keep its consumer inkjet printers (printers!), photo kiosks and the online Kodak Gallery.
