Kodak super 8 movie camera

Kodak has announced that it will be making a brand new super 8 movie camera.


It will incorporate a flip out LCD monitor.

The lens will be C-Mount. This will make the camera be able to accept interchangeable c mount lenses. This is a big thing to film makers.

It will have an audio record input.

The Kodak super 8 movie camera will use the same cartridge system of old.

Larger film gate almost 11 percent.

Estimated price will be between $2,500 to $3000 US dollars.


This price is very high for a super 8 camera. I would suggest that for this type of money you go the 16mm route.
