  • Hands-on with Kodak's Playsport and Slice Cameras


    Kodak showed us their clever little Slice and Playsport cameras. The Slice is a touchscreen point and shoot and the SportPlay is a completely waterproof mini-camcorder. Both aren’t quite ready and will be available in the Spring of this year but both are pretty cool. The Slice has a large rear screen with touch controls. You slide through photos with your fingers and then tap little… Read More

  • Kodak's Playsport: fully waterproof successor to the Zx1 HD pocket cam

    We’ve always enjoyed Kodak’s pocket cams — compact, decent video, and solid price. The newest one is pretty awesome; I got to put my hands all over it last night and it has a good feel to it. It’s smaller, but feels more solid than the Zi6, Zi8, or Zx1. And of course it’s totally waterproof. They had it in a fish bowl and it functioned just fine. I don’t… Read More

  • Kodak launches Slice touchscreen camera

    Kodak pretty much started the point and shoot camera market, but they’ve been behind for a while as far as innovation goes. In fact, this is pretty much an attempt to catch up with Nikon, Canon, and the other manufacturers who are using a touchscreen interface. Read More

  • Kodak Hooks Up With TweetPhoto For Realtime Photo Sharing Lovefest

    Imaging tech juggernaut Kodak is pretty keen on utilizing social media to connect with current and potential customers, boasting a presence on such sites as Facebook, YouTube and Flickr. The fact that it doesn’t own the @Kodak handle on Twitter hasn’t stopped them from being active on the popular micro-sharing service either, where marketers of the company and many of its… Read More

  • Cage Match! HP versus Kodak


    Kodak: We’re the cheapest cost-per-page photo printers on the market! Look, here’s a whole bunch of independent research proving it! Nya-nya! Hewlett-Packard: NUH-UH! You’re a big fat liar, Kodak! We’re the cheapest cost-per-page. Kodak: Pfffft! Hewlett-Packard: Stop it! I’m telling! Hey CrunchGear! Kodak is being mean!! CrunchGear: What? Huh? Don’t make… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Kodak Zi6 HD Pocket Video Camera

    Pocket video cameras might eventually be killed off by the iPod horde, but that doesn’t mean that the current crop aren’t worth your time. The Kodak Zi6 HD is a nice little camera and Woot has a nice deal one ‘em today. Read More

  • Kodak outs the 1080p Zi8 pocket camcorder

    Oh man, we nailed it. Remember that dumb Kodak viral video we posted where a marketing dude was showing off the latest Kodak product but it was blurred out Japanese porn-style? Well, we said it would be an updated pocket camcorder and it’s a new, 1080p-recording pocket camcorder. Read More

  • Video: Look! An unannounced Kodak thingamajig

    Yes, this is a viral video and yes, I’m posting it. But according to the YouTube discription, Kodak is announcing the product blurred in the video on July 29. I’m guessing it’s a new pocket camcorder along the same lines as the Zi6. Any other guesses? Read More

  • Kodak wishes to reunite Megan Fox and the boy with the yellow rose

    I’d imagine by now you’ve seen this picture of Megan Fox snubbing this poor little portly boy at the London premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. If you haven’t then you need to get out from under the rock or watch The Soup or something. Read More

  • Kodak stops Kodachrome film production

    It’s a sad day, film fans. Kodak will retire its Kodachrome film, citing, um, its near commercial relevance. Sales of Kodachrome film only account for 1 percent of still-photo (that is, not including movie film and all the digital equipment) sales. Read More

  • Review: Kodak Zx1

    Tell yer ma and tell yer pa if they need a little, handheld video camera for taking high quality shots of the cousins messing around in the yard, then the miniature Kodak Zx1 is for them. Read More

  • Review: Kodak Z980

    I’ve been avoiding this moment for a month. Before I left for Europe, Kodak sent me their latest ultra-zoom camera, the Z980, and I’ve been carrying it for over 30 days and through five countries. I’ve taken about two hundred photographs and I’ve gotten to know this thing fairly well. My initial conclusion? I’m going to say this just to get it over with: I miss… Read More

  • Quick Look: Kodak Zx1 camcorder

    We’ve been excited about the Zx1 since they announced it at CES and now it’s finally arrived. This successor to the popular Zi6 is a mini-camcorder with direct-to-YouTube capability along with an SD card slot for storage expansion. This new model is weatherproof but not submersible, something you’ll discover if you drop it into the toilet. Read More

  • Quick Look Video: Kodak Z980 24x zoom camera


    The mailman just brought Kodak’s $399 Z980 24x zoom camera and I wanted to get a video up for you all before I gave it a more careful look-see. I’m fairly impressed so far, especially for a lower-cost ultrazoom camera. I’m down on ultra-zooms because it’s not quite a DSLR and not quite a point and shoot – this thing is actually quite bulky – but so far… Read More

  • Kodak photo archives to be shown in the U.K.

    As you can well imagine, Kodak has one of the most complete archives tracking the evolution of photography. Covering over 120 years, the Kodak archive has long been of interest to historians and researchers, however very little of it has ever been seen by the public. Read More

  • New Kodak Easyshare superzoom looks solid

    There is no shortage of point-and-shoots on the market, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give Kodak’s latest a look. It’s called the Z915 (memorable, I know), and looks, well, like a camera. I mean, it doesn’t look like a DSLR, and it doesn’t look like a little metal lozenge — it looks for all the world like a regular consumer film camera from the 90s. Read More

  • Kodak has no friends in Korea: LG sues on cameraphone tech


    First, Kodak sues Samsung and LG for some patent infringement, then Samsung sued Kodak. Now LG is suing Kodak. Bloops! Read More

  • Samsung vows to block Kodak camera imports

    I have no idea what’s going on here but Samsung is fighting back against Kodak on some sort of patent issue because Kodak was originally suing Samsung. First, Kodak filed a complaint to the International Trade Commission citing patent infringement against LG and Samsung on Kodak technology. The patents dealt with image capture, compression, and storage as well as a preview method. Read More

  • CrunchGear PSA: Don't buy the Kodak C813

    Listen, people. I’ll only tell you this once. Don’t buy the Kodak C813. At least that’s what DigitalCamer-HQ is suggesting and those guys know cameras. This $75 8-megapixel point and shoot lasts about a week and suffers from bad image quality, broken LCDs, and battery door issues. Read More
