Kodak wants to put RP in Guinness Book with digital photos

MANILA, Philippines -- Imaging giant Kodak is eyeing to put the Philippines in the Guinness Book of World Records by attempting to make the world's biggest photo album. The Philippine photo album will be eight feet by 5 feet in dimensions and is expected to contain thousands of 4R and 8R size photos.The attempt aims to break the existing a giant photo album record of 7.8 feet by 3.9 feet held by Dubai.As part of the record-breaking attempt, Kodak will bring the empty giant photo album to malls where they have Kodak printing centers.Visitors can have their photos posted in the giant album by printing a minimum of 50 photos to get an entry.Entries will also have a chance to win digital cameras and photo albums from Kodak.In an interview with INQUIRER.NeT, Kodak Philippines Express Channel Marketing and Business Development Manager Timmy Jaime said that the record-breaking event is expected to encourage Filipinos to continue printing photos and placing them in photo albums, instead of storing them in digital format. "Digital storage mediums are convenient but they are not as personal as putting photos in albums. The idea is to encourage people to love their photos," Jaime said. Jaime added that they have already started getting local celebrities to post their photos online.Among those invited to be part of the record-breaking feat are Frances Magalona, Agot Isidro, Tim Yap, Jed Madela, Boy Abunda, Mojofly and Lino Cayetano, among others.
