Ironic, considering it pioneered digital photography.
Being first doesn't mean best nor does it give you any clear advantage as opening a new market often paves the way for someone else to see your mistakes, do it better, and dominate that market. No more ironic, for example, than watching Micro$lop give away the tablet and smart phone market to others when they clearly had a huge head start IMO, were leaders in the pack, and blew the opportunity simply because of their arrogant corporate culture.
Ever hear anyone ooh and ahh over a new Kodak camera in the last 30 years?
Nope, maybe over a Nikon or a Canon, but not a Kodak.
Kodak is just too 'old school', it's not new, it's not cool, it's your grandpa's camera and those "Kodak Moments" sound like some crap marketing you would peddle to people that watched Barnaby Jones and Matlock over 30 years ago.
Seriously, other than their film products, Kodak lost at every turn because their cameras aren't popular with either pros, amateurs or the mass market, nor are their printers.
Canon, Epson, Nikon and Fuji have literally drawn and quartered Kodak.
