miiicho: 3.15 x 1.65 x 1.06 inches ?I don't buy it unless it's metric!
You'd think they could put a man up there with all that.
D1NO and Giklab: Do you mean Russia and France don't use the metric system, or that they put men on the moon?
Those pictures just don't look good.
(Humor alert) There are two types of countries: Those that use the metric system, and those that went to the Moon.
jkokich: Those shots don't really look very impressive.

I know the article is an opinion piece. I don't usually criticize DP articles, but this one is downright silly. I'm going to grab my Minolta Beercan and my A57 and take some great pictures.
Mike FL: It is the time for Panasonic starts to look into APS-C and/or FF sensor while M43 sensor goes to its P&S, and 1" sensor goes to its Smart phone.
IBIS, in body image stabilization, right? My Sony A57, an APS-C ILC, has that. Am I missing something?
jkokich: I shoot a web series on my iPad, and this will make life sooooo much easier! I'm always running out of space, and this is much cheaper than buying a new iPad.
I produce a Doctor Who parody web series you can see on my website whatdoctortheseries.weebly.com and I shoot it using the camera in my iPad. The video is HD and looks great, but having only 16gb of memory is limiting, so this WD drive will give me a lot more storage.

RecklessAbandonArteests: It will be interesting to see how JK Imaging does with this.
In 2014 the Kodak name only has relevance with non-digital baby boomers (non-digital baby boomers includes camera users who grew up with Kodak film cameras in the 1950s forward).
Users born in the 1980s forward are using smartphones to take pics. Just as cell phones killed the wristwatch market, cell cameras are killing off interest in dedicated digital cameras. Moreover, for most users cell cameras take acceptable pics and video for viewing on the medium of choice, TFT monitors.
Kodak cameras are going to be designed, manufactured, and marketed to the baby boomer market. The cameras will always be simple to operate. I suspect JK Imaging is paying a paltry sum to use the Kodak name on its products, and the Company will take baby steps selling Kodak-branded cameras.
That's not to say this is a foolish endeavor. The baby boomer market is HUGE. And the point & shoot crowd has lots of cash to spend on cameras like this.
Let me check my wristwatch... Yup, there it is, right on my wrist.
It looks cool and takes good pictures.
Nice retro styling! Very cool!
jkokich: I love film. I love Kodak. Anyone who says film can be the same cost as digital is simply wrong. You have to buy film, which cannot be reused. You have to process film. You cannot watch film that you have just shot; it has to be processed. Sure, you can watch a video backup, but then why use film in the first place?
Please quote my entire sentence.
You guys are missing my point. I didn't say anything about archiving footage. My post was about cost, the cost of using film to shoot something. Film is more expensive to use. I can use memory cards over and over. I can view the actual stuff I shot, immediately. I don't have to buy film. Film is more expensive than digital. Anyone who thinks differently has never had to budget a shoot.

If using a $900 lens "helps" this camera isn't worth the purchase price. Yes, I know all the stuff about the best camera is the one with you, but it's a camera, image quality is pretty important.
I don't get it. A tripod is, essentially, one piece. This device is three. How does that make this easier?
For the money, there are better cameras.
Priced right, this would be awesome! Brilliant to make it compatible with all the great M43 lenses out there! Yay, Kodak is back!
