Kodak and Behar have partnered up in a venture to try to prove that Super 8 cameras still have a place in the world, as the companies will bring it back for the first time since 1982.
The new Super 8 camera will marry some old filmmaking functionality with newer technologies. Sure, it’ll use film like all cameras did back in the day, but it will also have an LCD screen that will allow users to watch their footage as they capture it. It’ll also be powered with a rechargeable battery, as opposed to the electrical sockets that old cameras relied on. The camera has been shown at CES 2016, and more details will be released in the near future. It will cost somewhere between $400 and $750, with Kodak expecting it to align more closely with the $400 mark. Although, since two of Hollywood’s biggest directors, Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams, are behind Kodak’s initiative, Kodak would probably do just fine selling it for $750. [Purchase]
