The Kodak PixPro SP360, with some of its optional extras

We've recently been hearing a lot about systems that record 360-degree video, although they mostly appear to be either professional setups or offerings from relatively small startup companies. That changed yesterday, however, when JK Imaging announced the new Kodak PixPro SP360 actioncam.  Read More

The Kodak PixPro smart lens cameras are similar to the Sony QX devices

When Sony launched its quirky QX lens-style cameras last year, they were something of an oddity and very different to anything else on offer. But now other firms are getting in on the action, including JK Imaging, which recently announced a pair of Kodak-branded smart lens cameras that offer 10x and 25x optical zooms.  Read More

The newly-launched Kodak PIXPRO Astro Zoom AZ361 bridge camera

Early last year, the Eastman Kodak Company announced the phase out and cessation of all its "dedicated capture devices." Citing the rise in quality of smartphone cameras, Kodak-branded cameras looked set to be consigned to the history books ... until a Los Angeles company called JK Imaging signed a brand licensing deal in January 2013 that would see the globally-recognized Kodak name emblazoned on a new wave of digital imaging devices. The first of the new PIXPRO line to emerge is the Astro Zoom AZ361 bridge camera.  Read More

After making and selling cameras for over 120 years, the Eastman Kodak Company announced yesterday that it plans to stop producing its “dedicated capture devices” – in other words, its digital cameras, pocket video cameras, and digital picture frames. The company plans on phasing out the products throughout the first half of this year. This news doesn’t come as a surprise, as Kodak filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection just last month, at which time it announced that it would be undergoing a “reorganization” in order to focus on its most valuable business lines.  Read More

Kodak has unveiled a pocket-friendly digital video camera and a 14MP point-and-shoot, both with a special button for tagging movies and snaps for upload to social networking sites or to send via email. The PLAYTOUCH video camera can record up to 1080p high definition video, includes face-tracking technology and a handy HDMI-out port. The svelte EASYSHARE M590 digital camera can also shoot high definition movies, although at the lower resolution of 720p, and benefits from optical image stabilization and a high sensitivity range. Images can also be tagged and sent to the company's PULSE Digital Photo Frame, which has just been given a bigger screen.  Read More

The Kodak Playsport video camera

Kodak has just announced that it’s bungee-jumping into the “actioncam” market, with this month’s introduction of its new compact, shockproof, waterproof HD Playsport video camera. Members of the public will have their first chance to try it out on Saturday, March 20th, at the 2010 Burton US Open Snowboarding Championships in Vermont. On the off chance that you won’t be attending that event, here’s a bit about the camera...  Read More

Some Playmobil people enjoy the underwater flexible OLED display

Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (FOLED) technology has opened the door to a range of new lighting and display applications, such as roll-up displays and displays embedded in fabrics or clothing. Unfortunately OLED displays are notoriously moisture sensitive, so underwater applications haven’t really been an option – until now. Kodak has dunked their latest FOLED displays under water to provide a virtual aquarium for a group of assembled Playmobil people.  Read More
