Today Kodak unveiled the Ektra smartphone aimed at photography enthusiasts and experts. The new phone operates on the Android operating system and offers a 21 megapixel fast focus camera with a f2.aperture. Available from December, the phone will offer DSLR functionality and 4K video capture.
Priced at £449, the phone will also feature a Super 8 app that will allow users to create videos reminiscent of the much-loved Kodak film stock. The design harks back to the original Ektra, often considered the finest consumer camera manufactured by Kodak in the 1940s.
Jeff Clarke, Kodak chief executive, says: “Kodak has a rich history in imaging technology and the launch of the Kodak Smartphone today demonstrates our ongoing commitment to bringing the latest advances in photography to consumers. The original Kodak Ektra Camera was launched in 1941 and in its latest reincarnation, opens up a world of creative opportunities to all who care about photography.”
