Shutterfly (http://www.shutterfly.com/) is a Redwood City based Internet startup that was founded in 1999. The company will take digital photos and mail you them as if they were processessed in the traditional darkroom manner of ordinary film. Its main investor is none other than Silicon Valley visionary, Jim Clark who feels that digital photography is making or will make traditional film obsolete.

Shutterfly and other Internet photography startups were able to get the edge in the digital photography market because Kodak and other major film companies simply did not see a market there. Now they are squeezing into what is now a growing market. It will be interesting to see what comes out of all of this in the next 5 years.
