CES is all about the latest and greatest technology. Sometimes though, the greatest tech isn’t anything new at all.
No one knows this better than Kodak, who’s revealed a Super 8 camera capable of, you guessed it, capturing video on good ol’ gelatin-based film.
To celebrate 50 years of the creation of Super 8 film, Kodak showed off an early prototype of a Kodak Super 8 camera that combines the best of the digital and analogue worlds. The camera offers a digital viewfinder, USB ports, SD card slots and a built-in microphone. But the key component is its 8mm film cartridge option.
In speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Jeff Clarke, CEO of Kodak, said the film will cost between $50–70 a cartridge. After being used, these cartridges will be able to be developed and returned to you as either a digital scan or in 8mm format for use in a projector.
Kodak says the camera is set to cost between $400 and $750 and will drop sometime in Autumn 2016.
