LFPCPH: My favorite camera is my old Olympus OM-1. Alas it is not digital ... but sometimes I just play with it to get over my abstiences.

What?

Photo-Wiz: I'm still yawning. Maybe it's just me. But I don't understand the raison d'etre for this camera. Has Kodak not heard that while it was hibernating the world has moved to pretty cool video cameras on virtually every phone and every camera?

How long have you been waiting for a chance to say 'raison d'etre'?

User9180204109: Does this mean a potential new life for my Beaulieu super8 cameras (4008 silent & 5008 sound, with excellent long power zooms by Schneider & Angenieux, respectively?

I am presuming the Kodak super8 cartridges are the same as 40 years ago?

Super 8 cartridges have been available all along. However, the current offerings are negative stocks only for color, and a single black & white reversal stock for direct projection.

Clearly more a production tool than a consumer device. Only the B&W film is a reversal emulsion. The color stocks are all negative films, so projecting those (other than as a party gag) is of limited utility. Double system sound has always been the serious option, since sound recorded on film means you lose synch when physically editing (sound head is not adjacent to film gate, as a loop is required to allow the sound stripe to pass over the recording head in continuous motion, while the film is exposed as it stops and starts through the gate 18 fps or 24fps). Full editing is much more approachable in the present than in 1980, with digital files for both sound and image. But, they really should have considered reviving the 200 ft. Super 8 camera cartridge. THAT would be sweet. And spendy, yes.

I was briefly worried about myself when I couldn't understand why these were women's bags. I'm OK now.

Reminiscent of the Pentax 67, no?

So, the 1.5" sensor is abandoned to get a longer zoom in similar sized body?

As opposed to your whole life before you were born?

If we continue to debate such nonsense, we deserve a future on the Planet Of The Apes.

Put any lens you want on it, you whiners. Price does not include a lens - crappy or otherwise.

The specifications page lists the body material as magnesium alloy, and the design page refers to it as plastic. Which is it ?
