Ron Inkley start photography retailing in 1946. He was PMA president in 1972. By 1996, he and his son Mat had grown his photography retail stores to a 30-outlet chain — when he sold the Inkley’s line to Ritz, name and all, and retired. Over the years the chain of Inkley’s dwindled, until the over-extended Ritz went out of business entirely last year, closing the last of the Inkley’s outlets. But in the meantime, Mat Inkley decided to return to the family line of work he’d been a part of since age 11 — and with his father, he took over a renovated old bus station, and within it opened The Imaging Depot in 2010. When two former Inkley buildings were again available after Ritz’ bankruptcy, they were already doing well enough to expand their new business to three locations. In this episode, Mat Inkley talks about why he returned to retailing, and why it’s working out so well the second time around.

How could a household name of more than 120 years quickly slip into oblivion? Photo industry expert John Larish followed Kodak for more than three decades, and in his latest book he provides an inside and highly documented look at how Kodak stumbled its way through a half dozen chief executive officers into the depths of darkness.
“Out of Focus: The story of how Kodak lost its direction,” gives an unprecedented view of how any large corporation can be so blinded by its own views of the world around it, Larish says, so that its personnel feel it is too big, too strong to fail.
The book is more than just an indictment or a litany of Kodak’s failures: Larish, a former Kodak employee himself before becoming an independent writer and consultant, tells us that readers in a wide variety of businesses have already told him they’ve learned valuable lessons from reading of the film giant’s mistakes.  The book is available here

New features are added to cameras every year, but the key to a good photograph in most situations is light sensitivity, not megapixels. Early consumer digital cameras performed poorly when it came to shooting in low-light situations without the flash, but there have been distinct improvements in this area. Now Fujifilm takes it one step further, combining pixels on the sensor to seriously boost light sensitivity.
