Kodak to discontinue line of black-and-white papers

Kodak will continue to supply black-and-white papers to cover current demand through the end of 2005.

Tim Ciranni, Kodak's worldwide product manager for pro lab media, told Professional Photographer that a steep decline in demand over the last four years spurred Kodak's decision to discontinue its line of black-and-white papers. According to Ciranni, most pro labs now scan black-and-white negatives and print on color paper. The discontinuance applies to any black-and-white paper sold by Kodak.

Kodak will continue to offer black-and-white film and processing chemistry.
