Kodak Brings Functional Prototypes of new Super 8 Camera to CES
Las Vegas, NV, Thursday, January 05, 2017 —
Since the overwhelming response to Kodak’s Super 8 Revival launched a year ago, Kodak has been working to develop a camera and film processing ecosystem to match the excitement. At the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), visitors to The Kodak Studios – located at LVCC South Hall 1, Booth# 20619 – can see functioning prototype models of the new Limited Edition KODAK Super 8 camera in action and view test footage demonstrating the camera’s ability to capture 8mm images with incredible quality.
Over the past few months, engineers have been working, filmmakers have been testing and the camera is on its way. In addition to the Limited Edition camera, the company is developing a range of cameras to suit all types of users at various price points.
“We listened to the community of directors, cinematographers and amateurs passionate about film. We are working hard to ensure the camera is worthy of the Kodak name,” said Brian Cruz, VP and GM, Consumer Products, Kodak. “It is important to do this right, and we are very excited to be on track to perfect our vision.”
The Limited Edition Super 8 camera will be available in Spring 2017, with consumer versions to follow.
