The basis of Eastman Kodak was the Eastman Dry Plate Company founded by inventor George Eastman and businessman Henry Strong in 1881.
Asked about the name, George Eastman replied, "Philologically, the word Kodak is as meaningless as a child's first 'goo'—terse, abrupt to the point of rudeness, literally bitten off by firm and unyielding consonants at both ends, it snaps like a camera shutter in your face.
Kodak bases its claims on testing of their paper by exposing them to a light source of 120 lux for 12 hours a day, however the more usual testing criteria is exposure to a light source of 450 lux for 12 hours a day, or 500 lux for 10 hours a day.
