Kodak.

The Eastmam Kodak Company, or more commonly Kodak, originated with the Eastman Dry Plate Company of New York. Inventor George Eastman introduced a line of cameras suitable for use by amateur photographers. This line of simple roll film cameras was called "Kodak" and Eastman registered the trademark on this name in 1888. The Eastman Kodak Company was founded in 1892.

Over its rich history, Kodak has been at the forefront of new technology. In 1885 George Eastman invented roll film which was the basis for motion picture film. In 1900, the Brownie was introduced, bringing low cost and simple photography to the masses. In 1920, Tennessee Eastman was founded as a manufacturer of photographic chemicals. Kodachrome, the first 35 mm color film, was introduced in 1936. Thirty nine years later, in 1975, the first digital camera was invented by Steve Sasson, an electrical engineer at Eastman Kodak. The next year the Bayer Pattern color filter array (CFA) was invented by Kodak researcher Bryce Bayer. In 1986, Kodak scientists invented the first megapixel sensor, capable of recording 1.4 million pixels. In 1994, Eastman Chemical, broke off of Kodak and continues to be a Fortune 500 company. More recently, Kodak has focused on the areas of digital photography and photo printing.
