“There are some moments that digital just can’t deliver, because it doesn’t have the incomparable depth and beauty of film.” That’s the reason Kodak has decided to remake its beloved Super 8 Camera ($400+), a retro-looking device made for creative people who love the old-school ways of video recording.
Just like the original model (from 1965), the new camera uses celluloid film cartridges that allow for about 3 minutes of footage each. It also packs up-to-date technology though, such as an SD card slot, a plug-in microphone, a pivoting digital 3.5″ LCD viewfinder, and modern connectivity options. Its robust body is made of machined-metal, with leather accents on the top handle and the removable pistol grip, for extra comfort. The Super 8 will let users shot at 5 different frame rates, swap between multiple C-mount lenses, and control manually the focus & aperture. Available in classic and rounded versions, in ‘midnight black’ & ‘bone china’.
