Eastman Kodak Company and Its U.S. Subsidiaries Commence Voluntary Chapter 11 Business Reorganization

Flow of Goods and Services to Customers to Continue Globally in Ordinary Course; Non-U.S. Subsidiaries Are Not Included in U.S. Filing and Are Not Subject to Court Supervision; Company Secures $950 million in Debtor-in-Possession Financing in U.S.; Kodak’s Reorganization to Facilitate Emergence as Profitable and Sustainable Enterprise

ROCHESTER, N.Y., January 19 -- Eastman Kodak Company (“Kodak” or the “Company”) announced today that it and its U.S. subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for chapter 11 business reorganization in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

The business reorganization is intended to bolster liquidity in the U.S. and abroad, monetize non-strategic intellectual property, fairly resolve legacy liabilities, and enable the Company to focus on its most valuable business lines. The Company has made pioneering investments in digital and materials deposition technologies in recent years, generating approximately 75% of its revenue from digital businesses in 2011.

Kodak has obtained a fully-committed, $950 million debtor-in-possession credit facility with an 18-month maturity from Citigroup to enhance liquidity and working capital. The credit facility is subject to Court approval and other conditions precedent. The Company believes that it has sufficient liquidity to operate its business during chapter 11, and to continue the flow of goods and services to its customers in the ordinary course.

Video Review of new Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera

Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera from B&H Photo Video on Vimeo.

B&H did a great job at looking into this new camera for capturing motion pictures. With the Canon name, and great specs this promises to be a great seller and promises to be a great producer of high quality video. Check it out! 
I got a chance to check it out at CES and WOW, it is nice. I cant give you a great personal in-depth review as I am not a big pro video shooter, but with the ability to use your existing canon lenses or the pro cine lenses you can save on glass. The price is a little high, but for the features it seams to be a great deal for mid-range (price) film makers.

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and CEA's Innovation Movement are under a 24-hour web blackout in protest of proposed legislation: Oppose PIPA and SOPA

CEA and Innovation Movement members,
Stand Up for Innovation, Oppose PIPA and SOPA.
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and CEA's Innovation Movement are under a 24-hour web blackout in protest of proposed legislation – the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the U.S. Senate.
The bills ostensibly go after Internet pirates, but are so broadly worded as to implicate legitimate businesses. If passed, they will mean more litigation and damage to the innovation economy.
Take Action
While SOPA is temporarily stalled in the House, the Senate plans to bring PIPA for a vote next week, even though most Americans are opposed.
Stand up for our innovation economy: contact your Senators today and tell them to say NO to PIPA!
Contact your Member of Congress today by clicking the option below and tell them to oppose PIPA and SOPA!  Now is the time to let your voice be heard!
Contact your Senator about PIPA here.
Contact your House representative about SOPA here.

You can also contact your representatives easily via Facebook or Twitter, a powerful and effective way to make your voice heard on this critical issue!
Contact your represetatives via social media here.
Thank you.
