Back in 2003 I had a Kodak ProBack 645C, which was the most marvelous piece of technology. It facilitated my converting to fully digital workflow and produced colors so beautiful and true-to-life that no other digital back or camera gave me until Leica S-E came along.Now, looking at all these dubious devices with Kodak logo on them makes me really sad. Everything from bitcoin mining rigs to toy film scanners looks more like merchandize sold at the village fair.
