CHICAGO, IL – APRIL 30: A vintage sign advertising Kodak film and cameras hangs outside Central Camera on April 30, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois. Eastman Kodak Co. has reached a deal to turn over the company’s film business to U.K. Kodak Pension Plan to eliminate a $2.8 billion pension obligation. Kodak, which once had a 90 percent market share of U.S. film sales, filed for bankruptcy last year.
