  • Video: Kodak explains how OLEDs work

    We all know the benefits of OLED and seen the figures on how much energy it saves and all that jazz, but do you know how it actually works? Well, you're in for a treat, friend. Sit back, relax and enjoy this 4.5 minute video. The next time anyone asks what OLED is just direct them to this video. It breaks it down pretty well. It's a shame they aren't ready for the masses, though. Read More

    Kodak Zx1: tiny, weather-resistant 720p for $150

    I've been using the Zi6, Kodak's answer to the Mino and other pocketcams, since its release and other than pretty awful low-light performance, I've been really happy with it. So I'm happy to hear they're releasing an upgraded version that looks cooler, probably performs better, and is weather-resistant to boot. Read More

    Kodak taking cost cutting to the extreme

    Kodak must not be doing so well. As part of a cust cutting move, the company is eliminating a vital, but still annoying, business tool. Free Coffee? Not yet. Elevators? Nope? Email? Nope, but getting closer. Read More

    Kodak suing Samsung and LG over patent infringement

    Good lord, sir. There are so many lawsuits about that you can’t swing a cat without hitting a lawyer. IBM is suing Papermaster, Papermaster is suing IBM, Apple and Psystar are suing each other, the US is suing LCD makers, Spansion is suing Samsung, and god knows what else just from the last couple weeks has escaped my memory. And now Kodak is getting in on the feeding frenzy, and is suing… Read More

  • Kodak brings its pro Vision3 film to Super 8

    Kodak brings its pro Vision3 film to Super 8

    I’m loving Kodak lately. They’re rocking the sensors, they’re introducing new Super 8 film(spotted here), what’s next? Their own social network? Actually, to be honest, I don’t really understand this latest move. It makes a lot less sense than a new color still film, which is still relatively well-used. Super 8 is pretty rare to find, and although its low cost means… Read More

The Good This camera is really, really light.  It’s surprisingly light.  You could easily forget that this thing was in your pocket.  It’s got a fast start up time, which means you’re less… Read More

  • Awesome: Kodak announces a new film, Ektar 100

    Awesome: Kodak announces a new film, Ektar 100

    Kodak’s really on it. In addition to creating some of the best digital camera sensors on the market, they are now also putting out the film with the finest grain on earth, in addition to it having extremely high contrast and color saturation. Very nice. Although the film in my fridge is nice big-grained T-Max 400, something like this might still be useful for fashion photographers and nature… Read More

    Whether you go Leica or Hasselblad, you're buying Kodak

    This is interesting. I really had no idea that Kodak was the sensor provider for both Leica and Hasselblad, whose near-medium-format professional DSLRs have been the talk of the town lately. Good for Kodak! I like it when companies are behind the scenes and don’t steal the thunder — companies like IBM and Broadcom that make the hardware that makes the hardware. I wonder then if Kodak… Read More

    Kodak announces $999 OLED photo frame

    Kodak will be showing off a fancy OLED photo frame in Germany next week. I bet it’ll look really nice. I also bet it’ll be prohibitively expensive for most people. Yep, there we go — it’ll cost $999. I hope you have some really good looking friends and family. If you have beautiful acquaintances and deep pockets, here’s what you’ll get: a super thin 7.6-inch… Read More

  • Review: Kodak Zi6 Camcorder

    Review: Kodak Zi6 Camcorder

    The biggest buzz in camcorders over the last year and a half hasn’t been from any of the big manufacturers — Sony, Panasonic, JVC or Canon, et. al. Instead, it’s a little product from a little company called Flip Video. A tiny pocket camcorder that offers simplicity and style over power and performance, Flip Video cameras — the Mino, Ultra, and Original — have been… Read More

    Kodak Theatre HD Player

    Kodak didn’t just announce a tiny little video camera last night. They also released an interesting Wi-Fi-enabled media player that can drag photos off of your memory cards and display them on your HD TV and then upload the images straight to a PC or Kodak Gallery. It will cost $299 and has a Wii-like remote that lets you browse photos and even listen to streaming audio over the Internet. It… Read More

    Kodak releasing tiny super-easy Zi6 HD camcorder

    The field of tiny camcorders is going to blow up. Things like the Flip Mino are going to take over whether we like it or not (we don’t), because they’re so dang convenient. No bells, no whistles, just push-button controls and super-easy connectivity and YouTube uploading. Well, Kodak is announcing a new tiny camcorder called the Zi6, which sounds more capable than the popular but… Read More

    Motorola launches MOTOZINE ZN5

    Remember zines? Well, this is nothing like that. This is Motorola’s latest “Z”-themed phone featuring a 5-megapixel sensor from Kodak (it actually takes some nice photos). The camera launches instantly when needed by sliding the front lens protector and you can upload images automatically or use Kodak’s EasyShare Suite to edit and move the photos on the PC. China’s… Read More

  • Kodak to sell pre-loaded picture frames

    Kodak to sell pre-loaded picture frames

    I got my mom a digital picture frame and I don’t think she turned it on. Even though it’s one of those fancy ones with Wi-Fi and web sharking, she just can’t fathom its manifold complexities. Kodak’s new frames, on the other hand, hold up to 100 snapshots, pre-loaded by the factory. You can also add new images with a Kodak flash card, also pre-loaded. Minutes to Make… Read More

  • Flashback: Kodak's first digicam

    Flashback: Kodak's first digicam

    It was Kodak that made the first digital camera in the year before I was born. It was cobbled together out of spare parts in the Kodak labs and was less than .01 megapixels in resolution. It was the size of a toaster and it took 23 seconds to record a black and white image to a cassette tape. That’s all so retro cool. It was “portable”, but nobody at Kodak likely thought it as a… Read More

  • Motorola ZN5 aka X PIXL photos leaked

    Motorola ZN5 aka X PIXL photos leaked

    Remember way back in October I told you about a handful of Motorola phones that everyone thought were fake? Well, it looks like the X PIXL is real and Kodak is supplying the optics for the Motorola ZN5 as it’s being called now. The 5-megapixel Xenon flash handset looks mighty fine, but I’m not fond of the new keyboards that Motorola is putting on their devices like the ROKR and Z9. Read More

  • Kodak's new digital photo frames feature gesture-based input

    [photopress:kodak.jpg,full,left]Kodak’s dropped a trio of new digital photo frames that lack the usual controls or remote control that most frames come with. Instead the frames have a multitouch-like “Quick Touch Border”, allowing for gesture-based input to browse or display photos. It’s a cool idea. The M820 and M1020 are 8- and 10-inch frames, respectively, featuring… Read More
