Kodak to stop making cameras

Kodak has been making and selling cameras for more than 100 years.

Holy moly.

Kodak plans to get out of the digital camera, video camera, and digital picture frame manufacturing business before the middle of this year.

It’s doing this to try to return to profitability.

The company expects to license its brand, much like Polaroid has done.

Kodak execs say the company will remain committed to its consumer businesses.

Here’s what that entails: retail-based photo kiosks and digital dry lab systems; consumer inkjet printers; Kodak apps for Facebook; Kodak Gallery; Kodak camera accessories and batteries; traditional film and photographic paper.
