From the time of its founding, Kodak followed the razor-and blades-strategy (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. of selling inexpensive cameras while making large margins from consumables, namely the film, chemicals, and photo paper. As late as 1976, Kodak commanded 90% of film sales and 85% of camera sales in the U.S. Kodak began to struggle financially in the late 1990s as a result of the decline in sales of photographic film and some believe because of its slowness in transitioning to digital photography (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
