Doesn't sound like they'll be doing DSLR sensors, maybe cell phone and
cheap P&S sensors.

More like they aren't doing any yet.. Do you have an in at Kodak that told
you they have no plans for anything other than sell phone sensors?

I do know someone at Kodak. If they bought a company to get into CMOS
sensors,(as did Dalsa) it's likely they are in it to cater to the
high-volume, mass market products like cell phones or cheap digitals
and not higher end products. Their statement that they "might get
back into DSLRs later"
is a loser's proposition, if they mean it.

Old news, as is the news that Kodak bought National Semi's sensor
capability. Kodak is now selling some CMOS sensors bigger than those
from the Motorola collaboration, notably 3.1MP and 5MP sensors with
2.7 um sensel pitch. No indication that they are heading for bigger
CMOS sensors. See
