Kodak Produces Super 8 Film Camera For Analog Enthusiasts

 Super 8 film is an alternative version to 8mm film developed by Kodak. A roll of Super 8 is around 15 meters that can record up to 3600 frames for a 2.5 minute video at 24 fps. The use of film cameras has become less popular due to the very high cost, the difficulty of processing film and the introduction of digital cameras. This year, only one popular film used film, Oppenheimer, with a 65mm IMAX camera.

The Kodak Super 8 camera has been announced with support for KODAK VISION3 Color Negative Fil Super 8 film cartridges, TRI-X Black & White Reversal Film and EKTACHROME Color Reversal Film. The camera is also equipped with a 4-inch LCD screen, micro SD card storage support (for audio recording only), connection to micro HDMI and also C-mount lens support.

For charging, this camera still uses micro USB even though it's 2023. The accessories provided are a handle on the top and also on the bottom like a gun with a recording trigger. Through the LCD screen, users can choose various recording modes and frame rates (18.24,25 and 35 FPS) that they want to use.

Next December, Kodak Super 8 will be sold at a price of $5,4950 (~RM25,755) in the United States, then will be expanded to the European and Canadian markets. For those who still have an interest in the art of analog cinema, this is a classically designed camera that will provide an experience as if going back to the days before digital cameras took over the world.
