Photography pioneer Kodak files for bankruptcy

Eastman Kodak has filed for bankruptcy in a bid to survive a liquidity crisis after years of falling sales related to the decline of its namesake film business.

The once-iconic photographic film pioneer, which had tried to restructure to become a seller of consumer products like cameras, said today it had also obtained a $US950 million, 18-month credit facility from Citigroup to keep it going.
