Launched at CES 2016 the ‘Super 8’ camera has an integrated microphone that can be removed and updated with change technologies. It includes a digital viewfinder that has also been designed to allow creators to take full advantage of the new top handle style. Leather accents have been added into the top handle and pistol grip for reinforced comfort. Each camera will be made of machined metal finished in ‘midnight black’ and ‘bone china’. The Kodak camera will be able to record in both analogue and digital formats.

At the rear, the camera connects to an ecosystem of other devices to make it easy to create, share and archive. Inside the ‘Super 8’ still delivers analogue options with a slot for film cartridges Kodak is still making. When users purchase the film, the company will offer processing and digital transfer along with it. The lab will send the developed film back and email the creator a password to retrieve digital scans from the cloud for editing and sharing in any way.
