The Professor Posted January 11, 2016 Report Share Posted January 11, 2016 Eastman Kodak Co., the photography pioneer that was disrupted by the digital revolution, is placing a new bet on a gadget from a simpler time. The company is using the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show to lay out plans for a film camera based on the Super 8 design launched 50 years ago. Kodak stopped producing Super 8 units in 1982, after video cameras savaged the market for home movies made with film. Kodak introduced two models that are both the same and very different. The first Super 8 camera is a "retrofuture" design with a 21st century take on the classic version of the Kodak 8mm camera. These will be released in limited quantities in 2016 as a limited edition product, and is expected to sell for under $700. The second Super 8 camera is functionally nearly identical to the first, but is wrapped in modern design and will go on sale in 2017 for a much lower price. Kodak is also introducing a modern way of processing 8mm film. When you purchase Kodak Super 8 film you will be buying the film, processing and digital transfer. The lab will send you your developed film back and email you a password to retrieve your digital scans from the cloud so you can edit and share in any way you choose.
