This book is a celebration of the best Kodak moments of the last 50 years in electronic and digital technology. It is also the untold story of Kodak's pioneering efforts in the field of electronic imaging during the last third of the 20th century that eventually set the stage for how people capture, enjoy, and share images today. Insider and author K. Bradley Paxton had a front-row seat for the photo giant's groundbreaking inventions ... and also for what went wrong.
From the 1960's through the 1990's, Kodak was an electronic equipment powerhouse and digital pioneer -- from the development of Cold War spy camera technology and the Lunar Orbiter and mirrors for the Hubble Telescope, to the invention of the first digital still camera, Photo CD, and early digitization and restoration of motion pictures, including Disney's Snow White. An interesting, fun read.
