10 seconds for a dream. if you care about this plea, well, just sign and spent a word with friends or relatives.

Photographic film plays an invaluable tool to a photographer purist. 

Many people are missing the presence of kodak in this field. A sector for which it was born, for which it is grown. Film does not belong to the past and is a viable alternative to the digital sensor. No more discontinuities.

    21. Kodak Alaris is the new owner of the Personalized Imaging business

      Marcello Torrero
      Petition Organizer

      Kodak Alaris is the new holding company set up by a pension fund representing Kodak’s United Kingdom workforce which is now the owner of Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging units. This means that film business is under this new company.
      So, I've changed the recipient of the petition, as you have seen.

    22. Say goodbye to Hasselbad V-system..

      Marcello Torrero
      Petition Organizer

      If the man will be back to the moon or some distant planet then there will be no more 120 rolls or chromed Victor Hasselblad cameras. At most he will record spatial landscapes on a mirrorless lunar camera (a recent release of the swedish company).

      Larry Hansen, Hasselblad Chairman and CEO said: "Everything has its place in time. The veteran 503CW combined with an extensive V System range of interchangeable lenses and accessories, was for seventeen years the camera of choice for discerning professionals and aspirational amateur photographers.
      But there has been a substantial decline in demand for this camera over the past five years or so and the time has now come for us to reluctantly consign the V System to history. In so doing we would like to thank all fans and customers for both their loyalty and their enthusiasm for our legacy Hasselblad V System."

      I would suggest that Kodak conduct a pre-order run and then if the numbers merit a new run of reversal film, than go for it. However, Kodak may have consolidated their film to negative only to ensure that sales remain high enough to warrant making it year after year. If the film making market dilutes too much, than it could make both the negative and reversal lines unprofitable.
