    Did you know Kodak developed the first digital camera?

    where is Kodak today?

    Kinda like a photographer and can be great (maybe even poor)... you still need to be good at marketing your product to the consumer to be profitable... right Nick?

    There was a documentary on the BBC this week about great business failures. Polaroid were featured. They were onboard very quickly with digital but underestimated both the market size and the competition. With huge factories and staff to support they couldn't accept a future without paper or chemicals in the mix and developed ever more fancy 'traditional' solutions. It's like they invented the wheel and couldn't see beyond making more chariots. Ultimately they lost their edge and the rest is history.

        More to the point, why did it take a team? It says it took 10 minutes, so why 4 people?

        4x5 Negs - the heart of a business system
        by Jim Conway
        I've been asked to comment on 4x5 negatives. It's such a broad topic from both the technical and business standpoint that I'll just start with a few things and respond if there are questions.
